While writing an article on the ancient art of memory, journalist Joshua Foer put his own brain to the test. He entered the 2006 USA Memory Championship - and won. He describes his experience in his book, "Moonwalking with Einstein." NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan caught up with Foer recently to discuss the culture and science of memory and give us some tools on how to memorize long lists, quickly.
