Throughout my research, it has come to mind that this disorder is in need of some attention. Thesis Statement: What I discovered was that obsessive compulsive disorder is highly misunderstood. Preview Statement: In these next few minutes I want to share with you what obsessive compulsive disorder is, how it affects lives of the individual and their family, and various treatments and therapies for the disorder. Prosopagnosia is a rare neurobehavioral disorder in which the ability to recognise previously familiar faces is impaired. The sufferer is unable to identify familiar individuals by their facial features, and in some cases cannot recognize a face at all. In the latter, the patient cannot combine facial features together as a whole unit to form and recognise it as a face.
Prosopagnosia is a type of agnosia. Prosopagnosia was initially described and studied in detail in the by Joachim Bodamer, a German neurologist. The aim of this paper is to examine how the cognitive functions and physiological functions combined bring about a specific behaviour in people. Prosopagnosia is a neuropsychological condition involving the inability to recognize faces of people they know. It is said to be a neurological, because it involves the brain, any damage done to a specific area of the brain impairs the patient from recognizing faces. The specific area of the brain responsible for this disorder is the fusiform gyrus which is part of the temporal lobe.
The table 4. Measuring the Chi-square is the first step to indicates wheter the model fits the data or indicates the different between the estimated population covariance and the sample covariance. The smaller value of Chi-square means the value are more better.
There are evidence that there are particular impairments that only influence face recognition as well as stimuli recognition, such as objects, cars, and animals. However, they could only identify their family members by conversing with them as they could recognize voices Meadows, Associative Prosopagnosia is used to describe people with spared perceptual processes but deficits in linking early facial perception processes and the semantic information we have of people in our memories. It is also known as Developmental Prosopagnosia.
