Face blindness

Today's Sunday and it's time for extensive listening, so put your feet up and get ready to enjoy this video.

Imagine you couldn't recognize people's faces, and even your own family looked unfamiliar. This 60 Minutes CBS report on face blindness or prosopagnosia  is a disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while the ability to recognize other objects may be relatively intact. This condition may affect up to 2.5% of the population.
