A new study says pretty much anyone can have an memory if they train their brain. Scientists say that we can train our brain to be a "memory " just like athletes train to be champions.

Dr Dresler even suggested people could train their brain to enter the World Memory Championships that are held in March year.

Dr Dresler compared MRI of the brains of 23 of the world's top 50 champions with the brains of "normal" people. He said: "We were in what differentiates memory champions from people, like you and me." He was surprised to find no . This made him believe we can all become memory athletes with the training. Dresler found that 40 days of 30-minute training sessions using a memory technique called mnemonics more than doubled a person's memory .
