Does localisation blindsight extend to two-dimensional targets?

Abstract:

Residual sensorimotor skills which survive compromise of the geniculostriate visual system may depend on activity of the dorsal stream of extrastriate occipitoparietal cortex. These circuits are crucial for controlling hand and eye movements to targets in a three-dimensional world. Remarkably, demonstrations of above chance localisation by hand and by eye in blindsight patients have used luminous targets that were only varied in one spatial dimension. These limitations result in experimental ...
