Prosopagnosia /ˌprɑːsəpæɡˈnoʊʒə/ [1] (Greek: "prosopon" = "face", "agnosia" = "not knowing"), also called face blindness,[2] is a cognitive disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize familiar faces, including one's own face (self-recognition), is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision making) remain intact.
