#6 – Capgras Delusion
Imagine that your mother just walks into the room and you look at her only to find that this is not your mother. You just wonder who this woman is. This is what Capgras Delusion is is all about. People suffering from the disorder believe that their parents, or their spouse, or their friend has been replaced by an impostor.
The strange part about this disorder is that sometimes the person is able to recognize everyone else except that one person who is really close to him or her. So, a woman may recognize her parents and her children but not her husband. The disorder is believed to occur because of a breakdown of normal face perception. So, do you recognize your spouse?
