Prosopagnosia

About This Video

Dr. Behrmann talks about her research on prosopagnosia - commonly known as faceblindness. Patients with this disorder have a difficult time identifying people based on facial information, even though their visual system is otherwise intact. Through a number of examples of her own patients, Dr. Behrmann illustrates the issues that prosopagnostic patients face in their daily lives.
