The current account in favor of a vague idea of ??cell assemblies is open for a long time, and it continues to receive information about the presence of cortical areas specialized for the perception of people. Group Charles Gross of Princeton found in the brain of a monkey in one of the visual areas of the temporal lobe cells, as if to selectively respond to faces. People with damage to a particular area in the lower area of ??the occipital lobe often lose the ability to recognize faces, including even those of close relatives. Antonio Damasio of the University of Iowa has suggested that these patients are unable to recognize not only the person, but also a wider class of objects, including faces. He describes a woman who did not recognize as individual vehicles in addition to the individual. She could distinguish the car from the truck, but looking for your own car in the parking lot, she was forced to bypass the machine series and read their license plates indicating intactness of her vision, and the ability to read numbers.
