November 25th - Face Blindness
Imagine you couldn't recognise
people's faces, and even your own family looked unfamiliar. Imagine brushing
your teeth every morning and not wholly recognising the face in the mirror.
All of this is unimaginable for
most, but a basic fact of life for people with the mysterious neurological
condition called "face blindness" - or prosopagnosia - which can make
it almost impossible to recognise faces, even of one's nearest and dearest.
Dr. Oliver Sacks knows something
about this condition, not only because he's a neurologist, but also because he
himself is face blind. 60 Minutes correspondent, Lesley Stahl reports.
