This chapter provides additional evidence demonstrating that AH has a selective deficit in visual location and orientation perception. Tests show that AH's impairment in processing visual location and orientation information is not limited to direct-copy tasks. She presented with severely impaired performance across a broad range of tasks that differed widely in the form of the stimuli, the nature of the responses, and other task requirements. As in the direct-copy tasks, her errors were extremely systematic, taking the form of left-right and/or up-down reflections.

Keywords:   visual perception, visual location processing, orientation processing, direct-copy tasks
