What is this study about?
The aim of this study is to shed further light on self-recognition, by investigating potential temporal recovery solutions to impaired self-face recognition in prosopagnosia. The study will involve administering a self-recognition task to individuals with prosopagnosia.

Who is conducting the study?
The study team is formed of three researchers in the Department of Psychology at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge - Dr Flavia Cardini, Dr Peter Hills and Dr Fiona Ashworth.

Who are we looking to recruit?
We are looking to recruit people with prosopagnosia following an acquired brain injury, aged 18-75 years.

What is involved?
Suitable participants would be required to attend one day of computer based tasks (with multiple breaks where needed) which could take place either in Cambridge, London or the participant’s home. Participants will be invited to perform a number of computer based tasks including a self-recognition task where they will look at different pictures of either their own face or someone else’s and will be asked to decide whether the face is their own or the other’s. The overall experiment will take around 3 hours and will be divided in four sections across the day.
