Face blindness: Bournemouth experts study prosopagnosia

Help

Researchers at Bournemouth University are studying Prosopagnosia or "face blindness" - a condition where some people find it difficult to recognise faces, including their own.

It is hoped the study will uncover what causes the condition, which scientists estimate affects one-in-50 people, in some form.

Paul Schofield, from the Isle Of Wight, was one of the first people to take a new test designed to analyse face recognition skills.
