To the Editor:—
Dr. J. Dana Darnley's answer to the question of facial perception of the blind (197: 738, 1966) is excellent as far as it goes, and he is correct in noting that there are no references in standard texts of neurology and ophthalmology.However, there are several studies on this subject found in psychological and other journals. Some of these studies are concerned directly with facial perception:Perhaps your readers would be interested in these references.
