The optical part addresses the eye's skill to correctly concentration gentle at the retina. The retinocortical part converts gentle into neural signs within the retina, transmitting them to the first visible cortex. ultimately, the integrative part converts this easy visible details into extra complex kinds. the indications and symptoms, checking out tools, and ailments of every a part of the visible approach are provided utilizing this specific, structural part technique. a last bankruptcy discusses the visible manifestations of psychiatric disturbances. The booklet is seriously illustrated with over one hundred fifty fantastically rendered line illustrations, 50 radiographic mind photographs, and 60 retinal images. Case reports with educating questions also are incorporated, to additional the reader's wisdom and try realizing.

Example text

In some patients, a failure to copy or match (apperceptive agnosia) suggests that the recognition process is disturbed at a relatively primitive stage of visual processing, perhaps at V4 or earlier. In others, where copying and matching are closer to normal (associative agnosia), subtle perceptual deficits might impair activation of the primed areas located throughout IT. 93,94 Perhaps this phenomenon reflects the adaptive value of face recognition for monkeys. 95 Surface96 and depth electrode97 studies and PET scanning98 have shown participation of wide areas in both hemispheres, suggesting that the human cortex analyzes by grouping shared features rather than by recognizing predetermined entities.

It has no clinical relevance in the LGB, where subtotal lesions are exquisitely rare. But this magnification of the foveal region is perpetuated in the visual cortex, which occupies a much larger brain volume and where subtotal lesions are common (see "Primary Visual Cortex," below). The LGB is supplied peripherally by the anterior choroidal artery and centrally by the lateral posterior choroidal artery (Fig. 26,27 Occlusive disease of either vessel, which is rare, produces distinctive visual field defects (Fig.

Lesions producing visual object and face agnosias are located in the inferior occipitotemporal white matter and cortex (Chapter 16). In some patients, a failure to copy or match (apperceptive agnosia) suggests that the recognition process is disturbed at a relatively primitive stage of visual processing, perhaps at V4 or earlier. In others, where copying and matching are closer to normal (associative agnosia), subtle perceptual deficits might impair activation of the primed areas located throughout IT.
