Did anyone watch 60 minutes last night? The section on the inability to recognize faces?

 

As I was watching, it was brought out that people suffering from this disease are missing a specific portion in the brain, as evidenced by an MRI.

 

So, if we examine folks with AD that can no longer recognize us, would an MRI of their brain show a similar lack in that particular spot?

And has any one of you with the disease have difficulty recognizing people at a distance and they have to be quite close before you realize who they are?  I mean closer than would normally be needed?
