Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter explores both reference-frame issues in light of results from AH, articulating claims about the nature of location representations at the level of the visual system affected by her deficit. It argues that locations are represented at this level in the form of coordinates that specify distance and direction of displacement from an origin along reference axes.

Keywords: reference frames; visual perception; visual location; orientation perception
