Agnosias, Facial Recognition

The inability to recognize a familiar Face or to learn to recognize new Faces. This visual Agnosia is most often associated with lesions involving the junctional regions between the temporal and Occipital Lobes. The majority of cases are associated with bilateral lesions, however unilateral damage to the right occipito-temporal cortex has also been associated with this condition.
