The computation of occluded contours in visual agnosia: Evidence for early computation prior to shape binding and figure-ground coding.
We examined whether an agnosic patient with a deficit in early visual processing, HJA, completed occluded contours. We used matching tasks with stimuli composed of three superimposed or occluded shapes. Experiments 2 and 6 required superimposed or occluded shapes to be discriminated from distractors in which the position of one shape was changed. HJA was selectively impaired with occluded relative to superimposed shapes. His performance was affected by the spatial separation of the occluded c...Expand abstract
