Overview

Lynn Robertson has been studying how brain lesions affect spatial abilities for over 20 years, and her work has revealed some surprising facts about space and its role in visual perception. In this book she combines evidence collected in her laboratory with findings from others to explore the cognitive and neural basis of spatial representations and their contributions to spatial awareness, object formation, attention, and binding.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book is a substantive personal achievement and an important scientific contribution. It is also a valuable read for anyone seeking to enhance his ior her knowledge about the nature of visual-spatial perception. ... Space, Objects, Mind and Brains is an ambitious literary undertaking, and the text triggers a spirit of genuine scientific curiosity. Completing the text is a worthy intellectual exercise that ultimately leads to a fuller appreciatioon of the of the complexity and relevance of intact visual-spatial abilities.Students and professionals in neurology, neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience will all appreciate the rigor of Robertson's thinking and the clarity of her writing.' - Treven C. Pickett, in PsycCRITIQUES February 2005
