For language teachers who require a fuller description of this system, we would recommend Superlearning by Ostrander and Schroeder (1979).

2. Eidetic imagery. This is the ability to look at a complex visual scene and then be able to ‘see’ it in the ‘mind’s eye’ and describe it in fine detail, as if the eye were a camera photographing a scene.

Some formally educated adults retain this ability in the form of a photographic memory, which has obvious advantages in examinations. 3. Memory imagery. This is quite simply remembering events from the past.
