A Questionnaire To Assess Potential Face Recognition Difficulties

In 2015, Shah et al published the 20-item prosopagnosia index, also called “The PI20”, a self-report instrument for identifying developmental prosopagnosia.

In the study, participant’s face recognition abilities were assessed with face recognition tests, such as the CFMT, and other visual perception tasks were applied. Additionally, participants were also asked to answer and rate 20 questions. By comparing results from the questionnaire and perception tasks, the researchers were able to show a correlation between the two approaches of assessment.

This quickly answered 20-item questionnaire can help with identification of potential developmental face blindness. If you would like to read more about the author’s work, you can find more information here.


Living with Face Blindness

You are invited to a Town Hall Meeting on face blindness at The Rockefeller University, New York, NY.

Tuesday, December 13 at 5 PM – 9 PM

The Rockefeller University 1230 York Ave, New York, New York 10065

Best-selling author Heather Sellers (http://heathersellers.com/site/about.html) who is living with face blindness, will be one of our guests among a panel also including scientists and clinicians interested in engaging with the faceblind community.

To see the meeting program, register to attend the event at Rockefeller University in person or make sure you receive a link to stream it online, or to find out other ways to be involved, go to: https://registration.rockefeller.edu/faceblindness

We hope to make this town hall a meaningful experience that promotes the creation of a diverse community of individuals interested in the lived experiences of face blind individuals and the research that seeks to address their condition.
