Has anyone noticed this?

The Wikipedia is currently telling us that the authors of the journal paper that first described "hyperthymestic syndrome" are Elizabeth Parker, Larry Cahill, Dr. Paul Tejera, and James McGaugh. That's a funny thing. Dr Paul Tejera appears to have snuck in there some time since I last looked at this Wikipedia article, because his name is new to me. And just take a look at the journal paper itself, or the PubMed record for it, and look! - no Paul Tejera! I suspect that Dr Paul Tejera's moment of Wikipedia fame as a big time memory researcher might not last very long.
