Prosopagnosia, also known as face blindness, is a cognitive disorder where sufferers can’t recognise faces – even those most familiar to them, like their children, their spouses, their parents, and even their own. Other visual processes remain intact, though, so sufferers can still tell objects apart, they just can’t differentiate between peoples’ faces. To them, everyone looks the same. In best case scenarios, they might introduce themselves to people they’ve already met, and at worst, not recognise their children when they pick them up from school.
