Book Description

Offering a unique interdisciplinary approach, this book provides a fresh perspective on the popular subject of facial processing, sure to make it indispensable reading for students and researchers

From the Back Cover

Human faces reveal much about the people around us – who they are, what they're thinking, and how they're feeling. It's so simple that most of us take our ability to interpret faces for granted. But what would happen if we suddenly lost that ability? How would we pick out our friends in a crowd? Face Recognition and its Disorders tackles these questions and more. Uniquely focusing on the disorders of face perception, Sarah Bate provides detailed insight into both the neurological and psychiatric conditions that deprive some people of this ability, and what this tells us about the healthy human brain.

Key features:
* Core chapters examine the mechanics of the disorders along with the most important literature and research in the area; focus chapters discuss the theoretical implications of this research, ideal if you are looking to advance your knowledge even further.
* Discussion points encourage you to think critically about fundamental ideas and key pieces of research.
* Written with students in mind, this is a book that's perfect for dipping into or reading from cover to cover.
Face Recognition and its Disorders sheds new light on both disorder and the healthy face processing system. Students and researchers of cognitive psychology and neurospsychology will find this a stimulating read, and a crucial resource in developing a deeper understanding of face perception.
