“Experts are made, not born."
This is the conclusion that neuroscientists at the University of Sussex came to after studying the brain of Yusnier Viera.
Cuban-American mental calculator, Viera is known as ‘The Human Calendar’. This graduate from the University of Havana hold the Guinness World Record on calendar dates. He holds three world records for calendar calculations. He can name the days of the week for any dates of the past 400 years or given future years, giving his answer in less than a second.
He finished in fourth places at the Mental Calculation World Cup in 2006 and won the calendar category four years later, in 2010.
Yusnier has honed his ability to create short cuts to his answers by storing information in the middle part of the brain specialized for long-term working memory that helps him carry out tasks with speed and efficiency.
He teaches the system with which he makes such quick calculations and has written books as well. Recently, he published Basic Course of Mental Arithmetic and Master the Multiplication Tables.
