Prosopagnosia - Memory Game

The prosopagnosic patient PS is involved in a computer memory game, having to match similar visual shapes (filmed in a bookstore in the center of Maastricht, formerly a church). The video is interesting because it shows that some cases of prosopagnosia like PS do not have troubles discriminating/matching visually similar shapes, contrary to a popular (but incorrect) account of acquired prosopagnosia.
