From the Author
Prosopagnosia: As a consequence of volunteering to take part in the MK-ULTRA experiments, Zeb Marlowe suffers from a neurological disorder that causes face blindness called prosopagnosia. Prosopagnosia is a cognitive disorder in which the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision making) remain intact.
According to the Prosopagnosia Research Center at Harvard and University College London, "Prosopagnosics often have difficulty recognizing family members, close friends, and even themselves. They often use alternative routes to recognition, but these routes are not as effective as recognition via the face."
Oliver Sacks, a professor of neurology at the N.Y.U. School of Medicine and the author of "Awakenings," writes about the current science and his own experiences and strategies in living with prosopagnosia at newyorker.com/magazine/2010/08/30/face-blind?intcid=mod-most-popular
Leslie Stahl reported on prosopagnosia on 60 Minutes. cbsnews.com/news/face-blindness-when-everyone-is-a-stranger-20-03-2012/
Prosopagnosia is also referred to as "face blindness." You will find more information about this condition at faceblind.org at faceblind.org/research/index.html
