We examined object identification in two simultanagnosic patients, ES and GK. We show that the patients tended to identify animate objects more accurately than inanimate objects (Experiments 1 and 4). The patients also showed relatively good identification of objects that could be recognised from their global shape, but not objects whose recognition depended on their internal detail (Experiment 2). Indeed, the presence of local segmentation cues disrupted global identification (Experiment 3)....
