What is Prosopagnosia?

Agnosia is a general term for a loss of ability to recognize objects, people, sounds, shapes, or smells; that is, the inability to attach appropriate meaning to objective sense-data. Prosopagnosia (face blindness) is a disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired.
