WikiWorld: "Hyperthymesia"

By Greg Williams, 25 February 2008

This WikiWorld rerun is from January 29, 2007, and has been in the news recently. Cartoonist Greg Williams' brother, Brad, was suspected of having this condition when this comic first ran, and has since been studied by doctors at the University of California, Irvine. His case is now one of three considered to be genuine by the Irvine staff studying hyperthymesia. Brad's case was reported by the Associated Press, and is the subject of an upcoming documentary, directed by his brother, Eric.

This week's WikiWorld comic uses text from "Hyperthymesia". The comic is released under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 2.5 license for use on Wikipedia and elsewhere.
