There are large individual differences in face recognition ability. Prosopagnosics – or sufferers from face blindness appear at one end of the scale. A large body of research has
examined this deficit and considerably enhanced our knowledge of how all human’s process faces. Far less research has been conducted on superrecognisers who have the extraordinary ability to be able to recognise people they have only seen fleetingly. This article describes recent research conducted on super-recognisers, such as police officers who have used these skills to enhance detection rates.
