General Editing[edit]

I'm adding a few difference sources to give a little more depth to the article. It looks like it could use a bit more general information as well. That will have to wait till I get my hands on some basic textbooks however, as journal articles typically don't cover that level of information. Cmulick (talk) 01:58, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Symptoms and subtypes[edit]

Hello there. I added a link to he achromatopsia article, and included the fact that some of the symptoms are regarded as sub-types of agnosia. It would probably be an idea to add some more elaboration on each point, but I simply don't have the time at this moment. Happy hollidays! Rasputinous (talk) 17:43, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Someone had changed the meaning of 'Prosopagnosia' incorrectly so I changed it back and added 'Prosopamnesia' on the assumption that it is another symptom. Then messed up the punctuation twice! If someone could verify the amendments, I'd be grateful... --Thickycat (talk) 18:00, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Prosopamnesia checks out, its very similar to prosopagnosia, but it appears to be less sever. Cmulick (talk) 03:14, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Article Assessment for WikiProject Medicine[edit]

Hello. I am a member of WikiProject Medicine, a Wikipedia wide project that maintains and improves articles that fall under the scope of medicine. Since your article has fallen under our scope, I have placed the correct template(s) on this talk page for verification. Upon reviewed of the article, I'd like to make a few points, as shown below:

  • Assess article with class and importance factors
  • Added article to Neurology and Ophthalmology task forces for specialized improvement

I'm glad this article could fall within our scope, and I hope to see it grow large! Many thanks! Renaissancee (talk) 05:03, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
