Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Visual information processing in humans with intellectual disabilities and in animals is presented, for conceptual and methodological reasons. Much of the evolutionary path of higher primate species has involved the development of sophisticated visual systems that interact with complex, higher-order cognitive processes. Key questions in cognitive science address the manner in which the environment is represented by the organism, and thus relate to how knowledge about the world is gleaned, with implications for theories of action and decision making. Finally, it has become apparent that the distinction between perceptual and cognitive processes is not always a clear one, and that these processes interact in critical ways in underlying complex behavioral repertoires. Consistent with the emphasis in this series on individual differences, both typical and atypical development are explored here. Philosophical approaches to visualism are also presented. Chapters have import both for basic science and for the development of applications.

Book News Annotation:

Twelve contributions present and analyze research into the mechanisms behind both human and animal visual processing, and, further, posit philosophical approaches to visual processing. Many of the papers focus on the differences between typical and atypical mental development. Among the topics: visual cognition dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease, stimulus overselectivity in individuals with mental retardation, arousal modulation of neonatal visual attention, the multiplicity of visual search strategies in pigeons, and reconceptualization of conventional time and space measurement for memory studies.
