Isao Machii, a modern-day samurai, is renowned for his incredible agility and skill with the sword. He can slice a bullet in half in mid-air with a single swing of his sword, demonstrating his extraordinary balance, coordination, and reflexes. On the other hand, legendary gunslinger Bob Munden was able to draw and accurately fire his gun in less than a tenth of a second, faster than the average human brain’s reaction time. Despite not being from the Edo period as a Japanese, Machi’s abilities made him a legendary figure.

Scientists are still studying how the central nervous system helps individuals plan and execute complex movements with unconscious effort. Mental athletes like those competing in the USA Memory Championship demonstrate this by memorizing decks of cards in 20 seconds or remembering hundreds of names and faces in minutes without conscious effort. Anthony Dotino, the founder of the championship, believes that anyone can improve their memory through practice. Neuroscientists are investigating how memory training affects brain activity, showing that memory techniques can create networks in the brain that improve memory retention. A study published in the journal Neuron also indicates that average individuals can significantly improve their memory with just six weeks of training, making superpower memory improvement accessible to everyone.
