Prosopagnosia is a deficit in recognizing people from their faces.

Since other sensory, perceptual, and cognitive abilities are largely spared, CP is considered to be a stimulus-specific deficit, limited to face processing. Given that recent behavioral and imaging studies indicate a close relationship of… CONTINUE READING
