The term thymesia is derived from the Greek word thymesis, meaning memory [1].The capabilities of the affected individuals are not limited to the ability to recall specific events from their personal experience. Hyperthymesia has both enhanced autobiographical and episodic memory, as it was first described by Parker, Cahill, & McGaugh (2006) in A case of unusual autobiographical remembering.[1] They explained that there are two important characteristics of hyperthymesia:1. Individuals with the syndrome spend huge amount of time thinking about their past.2. Individuals have an unusual and amazing capacity to remember as well as recall any specific personal events or trivial details, including a date, the weather, what people wear on that day, from their past.Unlik
