Describing a range of approaches to neuropsychological investigation, this book provides an overview of visual neuropsychology. It explores the workings of the normal visual system, and explains disturbances of vision, including agnosia, neglect and blindsight. It also deals with the recovery and rehabilitation from cerebral visual disorder.
PART I: PHYSIOLOGY AND ANATOMY OF THE VISUAL SYSTEM: SINGLE CELLS; 1. Vision, behaviour and the single neuron; 2. Cortical connections and functional interactions between visual cortical areas; PART II: SUM-POTENTIALS IN HUMANS: ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY AND MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPHY; 3. Electro- and magneto-encephalographic and event-related potential studies of visual processing in normals and neurological patients; PART III: IMAGING STUDIES: FUNCTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING AND POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY; 4. Functional magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography studies of motion perception, eye movements and reading; PART IV: LESION STUDIES IN TRAINED MONKEYS AND HUMANS (TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION); 5. Lesions in primate visual cortex leading to deficits of visual perception; 6. Magnetic stimulation in studies of vision and attention; PART V: PSYCHOPHYSICS: PATIENT STUDIES; 7. Failures of visual analysis: scotoma, agnosia and neglect; 8. Colour vision and its disturbances after cortical lesions; 9. Unconscious perception: blindsight; 10. Perception, memory and agnosia; PART VI: REHABILITATION AND RECOVERY; 11. Recovery and rehabilitation of cerebral visual disorders
