The article focuses on the study by Standford neurologist Josef Parvizi which shows that fusiform gyrus is associated with out-and-out prosopagnosia or face blindness. It says that the study uses electrical brain stimulation in epilepsy patient Ron Blackwell to determine the influence of fusiform gyrus in the ability of Blackwell to recognize different faces. It mentions that the fusiform gyrus can cause the distortion of face perception in the patient.
