WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Memorial Library recently hosted Joshua Foer — science journalist, U.S.A. Memory Champion, and bestselling author of Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything — for a wide-ranging primer on memory.
Foer looked back to ancient mnemonic techniques, such as the memory palace, and present today’s cutting-edge cognitive research on how we remember. He also profiled both impressive memorizers and victims of severe amnesia, and offered an inside look at the National Memory Championships.
