Though color blind, myopic, without stereoscopic vision, and prosopagnosic (all intriguing conditions!), I nonetheless elected to study artistic vision... Follow your passion, your love, do what you most want to do vocationally and avocationally...Think beyond your own needs and desires; serve the wider community.
Searcher wrote:Exodus, prosopagnosia is not pathognomonic of Alzheimer's disease (pardon the French). That means it's not, on its own, sufficient evidence of Alzheimer's. Why not? Because it can be caused by anything that affects the relevant part of the brain. In this case, that's probably the right fusiform gyrus. Trauma is sufficient to explain it. Sometimes it's a congenital condition, and present throughout life.

I'm thrilled when I meet someone with distinctive features, since I know it will be much easier to pull up that face/name combo. When I go into a new setting, I now say "I have facial amnesia, so if I forget your name and face, just prompt me." People love "finding" I was right!
