Abstract

A diverse collection of perceptual and recognition deficits can arise from damage to cortical visual structures in the temporal lobe. In general, these deficits are collectively known as visual agnosia. However, the associated perceptual problems are quite diverse across the different categorizations of this disorder. Although not exhaustive, this article describes several forms of agnosias, including apperceptive, associative and integrative agnosia, simultanagnosia, and optic aphasia. Finally, the relation of visual agnosia to overall visual system functioning and understanding is considered.
