Inferiotemporal part of the temporal lobe, pars posterior

Associative agnosia,

The posterior portion of the temporal lobe inferotemporal portion, Brodmannarea 37, is functionally intimately connected to the adjacent vision/visual association cortex (areas 19, 18).

Injuries in this border area can result in so-called associative agnosia, which means that the person can clearly see and observe various objects in their surroundings, and can often classify them roughly, such as 'that's a house.... that is a little girl's face' but does not recognize that the 'house' is Stockholm Palace and that it is her own daughter's face that is being watched.

Associative agnosia of the faces is called prosopagnosia.
