Prosopagnosia, or faceblindness, is when you are unable to recognizeother humans by their faces in spite of having good eye sight.
Welcome to my pages about prosopagnosia
My name is Cecilia Burman, and I am 'face-blind' in the sense that I can not recognize people by their faces. The medical term for this condition is prosopagnosia . I have written these pages to try to give you who read them a better understanding for what it can be like to live with prosopagnosia
This is a brief introduction to the pages on this site:

This is a light introduction in pictures to what it can be like to try to cope with face-blindness. If you do not have prosopagnosia yourself, this page can give you an idea about what it is like. Because of the pictures, it loads slowly, but if you are interested in what face-blindness is like, I recommend that you take a look at it anyway.

El hecho central de mi vida ha sido la existencia de las palabras y la posibilidad de entretejer y transformar las palabras en poesía.
Borges, Jorge Luis. La poesía -manifestó [Borges] alguna vez-
tiene una entrañable amistad con la ceguera.
Alifano, Roberto. E l tema de la presente investigación es la ceguera en la obra lírica de Jorge Luis Borges. Nuestro corpus está constituido por cinco sonetos: “ On his blindness ” (OHB1) de El oro de los tigres El ciego I ” (EC1) y “ El ciego II ” (EC2) publicados en dos volúmenes, El oro de los tigres y La rosa profunda Un ciego ” (UC) de La rosa profunda On his blindness ” (OHB2) de Los conjurados Consideraremos solo parcialmente el “ Poema de los dones ” (PD) de El hacedor (1960) y “ Elogio de la sombra ” (ES) de Elogio de la Sombra (1969), ya que, por razones métricas, temáticas y estilísticas creemos que los sonetos forman un todo homogéneo y que, si bien estos dos poemas antes mencionados comparten núcleos temáticos, son más las divergencias que las convergencias que presentan con el resto de los textos del corpus. Todos los poemas sobre la ceguera fueron compuestos a partir de 1955, es decir, que no incluimos en este análisis ningún texto de sus primeros tres volúmenes poéticos.

Deaf-Blindness Information Web Page
Webmaster Ed Keller Table of Contents:
People who are deaf-blind have problems of communication, mobility and other daily living skills that are unique and make independent living more dificult to achieve. It can be a dark, silent and isolating world. The term "deaf-blind" doesn't necessarily mean total lack of hearing and vision. Some people who are deaf-blind are partially "hearing and visually impaired." They may have enough hearing to understand speech, especially when using a hearing aid, and may have some usable vision with or without corrective lenses. "Legal blindness" is defined as the ability to see at a distance of 20 feet what a normally sighted person can see at 200 feet , or to have peripheral vision that is restricted to 20 degrees or less (like tunnel vision). However deaf-blindness does mean that the combination of impairments of both senses interferes with the ability of a person to function effectively in the "hearing-sighted" world.

Could bionic eye end blindness?
Jens completely lost his sight 18 years ago, but with the use of special glasses, he can find his way through rooms. By Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Kristi Petersen (CNN) Artificial vision for the blind was once the stuff of science fiction Lt. Geordi La Forge's visor on "Star Trek" or the bionic eye of "The Six Million Dollar Man." But now, a limited form of artificial vision is a reality one some say is one of the greatest triumphs in medical history. "We are now at a watershed," Joseph Lazzaro, author of "Adaptive Technologies for Learning and Work Environments," told CNN. "We are at the beginning of the end of blindness with this type of technology." Any scientific advance would have broad implications. According to statistics from Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc., 1.1 million people in the United States are legally blind, while worldwide 42 million people are without sight. The Dobelle Institute is among several institutions trying in essence to create a new cornea through technology. The cornea allows light into the interior of the eye.

73. Prosopagnosia / Face Blindness
Prosopagnosia (face blindness) a description of an abnormal condition in whichface recognition is impaired, with particular emphasis on congenital or
Prosopagnosia (Face Blindness) Will you easily recognize your family members if they would change their hairstyle? Would you easily recognize a friend if you accidently met her in the post office? Some people will not. These individuals find the task of recognizing other people just by looking at their face extremely difficult. Thus, in order to recognize familiar people, they will rely on such features as the voice, hairstyle, and clothing items, or on contextual information.
Neurologists call this face blindness PROSOPAGNOSIA (Greek: prosop = face, agnosia = lack of knowledge). Prosopagnosia is a relatively rare condition and may result from stroke or brain injury. Nevertheless, in some cases, prosopagnosia can occur with no apparent neural damage and be present from early childhood (just as in the case of dyslexia). We refer to this condition as congenital prosopagnosia or developmental prosopagnosia. How face recognition is done by the human brain has been the subject of many studies in cognitive neuroscience, including studies of prosopagnosia. However, while only a small number of cases of developmental prosopagnosia has been reported in the medical and scientific literature, there are reasons to believe that in many more cases, individuals with a similar problem have never thought of seeing a neurologist.
Although, much is known about the way by which the brain processes visual information that is required for face recognition, developmental prosopagnosia is poorly understood. Research in our lab has focused on studying face perception using behavioral methods (i.e., face recognition tests), as well as noninvasive brain techniques such as EEG recording and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). For a brief report of our findings scroll down to the bottom of page 6 of the first issue of the Berkeley Science Review: "

Key features References Animated banners ; Table ; Figures
  • 1 Introduction
      Effects of Banner Advertising on the Internet
      It has been observed that contradictory results have been found regarding the perception of banner advertisements on the Internet. While some studies found that recall and recognition scores for banners were at a satisfactory level, others observed that banners are almost generally overlooked. In this study, it is argued that the opposing results might be explained by differences in navigation style (aimless browsing versus goal directed searching). To test this hypothesis, 32 subjects were presented with a Web site containing a number of banners ads. Half the subjects were asked to search for specific information, while the other half was instructed just to explore the site as they wished. In a subsequent recall and recognition test, subjects from the aimless browsing group performed significantly better than subjects from the information search group. Results are discussed with regard to the supposed underlying processes of perception and information processing.

Brief report on evidence of a link between smoking and agerelated macular degeneration.Category Health Addictions Substance Abuse Tobacco Effects......SMOKING CAN LEAD TO blindness. According to the researchers AMD isthe main cause of new cases of blindness among people over 65.
SMOKING CAN LEAD TO BLINDNESS In two articles published in the October 9, 1996 issue of The Journal of American Medicine and in a report to the American Aging Association, researchers helped strengthen the link between cigarette smoking and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). AMD is a condition in which the cell layer behind the retina begins to rot and rupture producing blurred vision and desensitivity to color. According to the researchers AMD is the main cause of new cases of blindness among people over 65. The researchers provided two hypothesis for the link between cigarette smoking and the degeneration. First, is that the cigarette smoking reduces levels of plasma antioxidant, a substance in the blood stream which protects the cells in the retina. This leaves the rather delicate cells of the eyes macula lutea (parts of the retina) left unprotected from oxygen molecules. The second hypothesis states that damage may occur when poor circulation (constricted blood vessels) due to smoking causes the protective layer between the retina and blood vessels to erode. This allows fluid to leak between membranes causing irritation and scarring. The fi rst study conducted by a team of researchers from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, followed 32,000 female nurses aged 50 and 59 for a twelve year period. Those who smoked more than 25 cigarettes a day had a two and half times greater risk of developing macular degeneration. The second study, conducted by doctors at the Brigham and Women's hospital and Harvard Medical School, focused on 21,000 male doctors over the same twelve year period and reported similar results.

Last Updated: June 2001. Motion Induced Blindness (MIB) is a phenomenon of "visual disappearance" in which salient visual stimuli disappear as if erased in front of the observers eyes. This demo demonstrates several properties of this phenomenon. It is implemented as a set of GIF animation and can only be appreciated if the apparent motion appears smooth or almost smooth. In general, fixate in the center or lower part of the screen without moving the eyes, pay attention to the moving pattern and observe what happens to the static yellow dots. For better results, download an executable version of the demo, available for Linux x86 and Windows systems. The demo is best perceived in the dark.
