And this is none other than a rare disease that affects three percent of humanity – reports the Telex.
It is possible that the long Covid can also cause selective face recognition problems, but it is not yet clear whether other than the subject in the report, 28-year-old Annie, lost their facial memory due to the infection – the portal quotes a study by researchers from Dartmouth College in the USA.
According to the case, the patient was infected in March 2020, then recovered by June and when he was able to see his family again, he could not identify his father’s face.
Face blindness or prosopagnosia is the result of damage to brain regions specialized for processing faces. There are congenital and acquired forms, of which the latter may exist in the case of the 28-year-old woman in the study.
