This is Dr Sarah Bate who is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology here at the uni. Sarah has an interest in disorders of face recognition, particularly prosopagnosia (face blindness).
This is a relatively unknown condition that affects one in fifty people and has been a popular topic in the media in recent months.
If you would like to learn more about this disorder, Sarah will be giving a talk at Cafe Scientifique Bournemouth at Cafe Boscanova, Boscombe on 5 March at 7.30pm http://cafescibournemouth.wordpress.com/
Once again, many thanks to Sarah who, thankfully, has made it her mission to regualrly update this blog.
