Dr Sarah Bate is a lead researcher in the Centre for Face Processing Disorders at Bournemouth, and author of the book ‘Face Recognition and its Disorders’ (Palgrave-Macmillan). Her current work examines the nature of face-processing impairments in adults and children with developmental or acquired forms of prosopagnosia (face blindness). Much of her existing research has used eye-movement technology to inform this issue. In addition to providing theoretical insights into the nature of prosopagnosia and its potential sub-classification, this work is aiding the development of potential remediation techniques that may be useful in a variety of acquired and neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by face-processing impairments.
