Prosopagnosia is a neurological disorder characterised by the inability to recognise faces. It is also known as face blindness or facial agnosia. Depending upon the degree of impairment some people with prosopagnosia may only have difficulty recognising unknown faces; while others are unable to recognise their own families and friends.
