Psychologist: Though popularized by the media and even some ill-informed scientists
, photographic memory is a myth. Most of the top competitors at this summer’s national memory championship have brains that are neurologically indistinguishable from those of the general population and cognitive abilities that are seldom more than a standard deviation above average
I feel that option D actually strengthens the argument.
D) Photographic memory was initially proposed by a scientist whose theories of mind have since been widely discredited. -> If the idea was proposed by a scientist whose theories have been widely discredited, doesn't he fall under the "ill-informed scientists" given in the question stem? If thats true, then doesn't it strengthen the argument that the photographic memory is a myth?
Please correct me if my reasoning is wrong.
Kudos if the post helped!
