The example I always think of is Oliver Sacks, the late great writer on neurology. When Dr. Sacks would go to a restaurant to meet his assistant of ten years for lunch, she had to raise her hand so he'd know which table she was at—he couldn't recognize her. Turns out there's an opposite condition—a small number of people are s...

Note that two of the illustrations are the "windowshade" type, where you can move the dividing line back and forth. (Does anyone know the proper name for that? I searched but couldn't come up with anything.) W...
