This Psychology Factsheet summarises prosopagnosia and case studies which examine people suffering from the disorder. It also covers how to use such case studies when discussing Bruce and Young’s (1986) model of face recognition (see the Factsheet ‘Answering questions on Bruce and Young’s model of face recognition without losing marks’ for description and evaluation of the model). Words in bold are explained in the glossary and the worksheet questions allow you to practice your exam skills.
