Abstract

The present paper reviews psychological and neuropsychological (brain-damaged and normal subjects) reasons for dissociating various forms of face familiarity on the basis of the encoding level and the nature (stimulus vs face vs person) of the material that becomes familiar. A case of prosopagnosia in which a dissociation appeared likely between defective processing of famous faces and a preserved processing of familiar faces is briefly described.
