This chapter discusses clinical observations relating to the dynamic information in faces in normal subjects and provides an analysis of studies on how the perception of faces in patients with various cognitive deficits is affected by facial movements. Current knowledge regarding the neurofunctional basis of movement perception is challenged by the perceptual deficits. The chapter states that moving images can help brains and perceptual systems weakened by disease in accessing information as they provide more and richer information than static ones. It argues that decoding dynamic stimuli is easier than decoding still images as dynamic images are more natural or more ecological, and, as a result, are more representative of the visual input for which the brain has evolved.
