This classic Horizon program looks at two patients suffering from a rare form of brain damage known as visual agnosia. The illness prevents sufferers from recognizing even familiar faces and everyday objects. Since brain lesions are implicated in agnosia, there currently is no direct treatment for the condition. Patients face so many challenging situations in everyday living that they may not be able to hold jobs or even relate properly to members of their own families. However, with time and training they may be able to make use of their other senses - taste, touch, smell, and hearing - to cope with their devastating loss of visual acuity.
