Want to retrain your brain? Checkout Learning Rx in Fort Collins, led by Mike Winchell. He’s the Program Director. Learning Rx provides 1:1 brain training for people, ages 0-100.

When Mike’s not running the show at Learning Rx, you’ll find him fine-tuning his skills as guitarist in KD & The Painkillers*, a local band (I’m also a member).

*We’re performing this weekend at Island Grill in Fort Collins on Friday & Saturday eve. Please stop by to see our brains at work!

It’s a case of: “I always forget a face.”

brain, memory

Word of the day: prosopagnosia, also called face-blindness, is a cognitive disorder in which the person is unable to recognize familiar faces. There is no cure for the condition.

Prosopagnosics adapt by remembering non-facial cues to identify people (similar to a police-blotter) by memorizing descriptions such as height, weight, hair, voice, and other unique identifiers.

Notable prosopagnosics: neurologist/ author Oliver Sacks and artist Chuck Close. Learn more here.
