Imagine being able to recall details from every day of your entire life.

For some, that's exactly how their memory works. Scientists are calling it "superior autobiographical memory," and it's so astonishing there are still some skeptical it exists.

"These people remember things that you and I couldn't possibly remember," James McGaugh, a professor of neurobiology at the University of California Irvine told "60 Minutes." "They can do with their memories what you and I can do about yesterday," McGaugh said, "but, they can do it every day."
