I found this post blog that had a youtube video on it that showed two
different people with visual agnosia. They had issues identifying specific
objects from different categories. The one guy saw an object that looked like a
candle but he used his other senses to smell it and recognized that it smelt
like a crayon. A picture came up where he could recognize the shape of the
object. It looked like a pen to him but the lady told him it was an instrument.
After he was able to think of different musical instruments he guessed the
right object. There are different types of visual agnosia. Some people have
difficulty recognizing specific object categories, recognizing faces, and
Visual agnosia is not caused by damage to their organ like their eye, its caused when there is damage to the visual processing areas or area of the brain.
The psychology of Perception involves the interaction of our senses and our conscious mind. Perception is involved in every aspect of our lives as we make decisions and judgments based on what we experience. If you study diligently you will leave this course with a broad understanding of sensation and perception. From this general understanding you will be able to further investigate areas of interest by means of literature review and research on specific topics.
