Eidetic imagery

Eidetic imagery refers to known as photographic memory. Exceptionally vivid (usually visual) imagery of objects or events that have previously been experienced. The images are as clear as if the subjects were perceiving them still. The ability to experience eidetic imagery is common, if not universal, in young children but in most people it disappears with age.
