Funny Board!! Yeahhhhh
lol same here
Lol I guessed it exactly because of that
Never heard of that one before. Thanks!
This is not prosopagnosia, but instead a case of apperceptive agnosia.
Wiki: "...patients are more effective at naming two attributes from a single object than they are able to name one attribute on each of the two superimposed objects. In addition they are still able to describe objects in detail and recognize objects by touch."
Although, lesions tend to be in the occipito-parietal area so PCA again is the answer!
I actually think it's both prosopagnosia AND apperceptive agnosia. She is neither able to recognize her mother's FACE nor is she able to recognize objects w/o the help of other senses (apperceptive agnosia)
Yea couldn't remember the exact name but I just thought of three pathways (visual, somatosensation, and auditory) all converging somewhere/processor (probably somewhere in the temporal lobe...hippocampus?). Beyond the point, the pathways converge to an area which culminates in recognition.
Cut off one of the routes (in this case visual), the other two will still work. How is visual cut off? By the PCA not supplying the area leading to neuronal death resulting in varying loss of visual function depending on the area in the occipital lobe.
