Visual Reflections

This chapter describes a detailed study of AH's reading. It shows that contrary to appearances, AH's reading is far from normal: When tested with appropriately chosen tasks, she shows clear and dramatic impairment. It presents strong evidence that AH's impaired reading performance is caused by her deficit in visual location and orientation perception.

Keywords:   reading impairment, visual perception, visual location, orientation perception
