Face recognition by Brain: How good are you in recognizing faces?

I came across an interesting report on people who are "face blind" (Prosopagnosia) on CBS 60 minutes show today and thought to share it.

Face Blindness: When everyone is a stranger - CBS News 

 Do you have trouble recognizing faces? Take a test - 60 Minutes Overtime - CBS News 

The researchers at Harvard University has two tests to check face recognition ability .  Here are the online tests to access how good you are in recognizing faces.  Have a look at them and take it if you have 20-30 minutes to spare.

 Some other brain tests: BBC - Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind - Face Memory Test

It's amazing to think about the intricacies and mysteries of brain function. I'm looking forward to the science advancements in this field.
