 							Effects of Visual Variables

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents evidence showing that AH's visual location and orientation perception are dramatically affected by several visual variables: motion, exposure duration, flicker, contrast, and eccentricity. In addition to buttressing the conclusion that AH's deficit has a visual-system locus, the results have implications for understanding the organization of the normal visual system.

Keywords: visual perception; visual location; orientation perception; motion; exposure; flicker; contrast; eccentricity

Chapter.  2848 words.  Illustrated.
