Now most of you will go through your day saying hello to students and colleagues, greeting friends in the supermarket and not give a second thought to how you know it is them. Well imagine not being able to recognise faces, you know you are looking at a face but you have no idea who it belongs to, you aren’t sure if you should say hello or keep on walking. For about 2-4% of the population this is a daily reality, they struggle with face blindness. PhD researcher Judith Lowes sheds some light on this fascinating topic and helps us to understand how we can support those around who may have Prosopagnosia.
