PS3019- Cognitive and Clinical Neuropsychology
VISUAL PATHWAYS: "What", "Where" and "How" systems in the brain.
This section of the module aims at highlighting the relationship between spatial, non-spatial and action related visual processing. The topics covered include sub-cortical visual pathways, cortical visual pathways, visual agnosias, optic ataxia and in depth discussion of Milner and Goodale’s neuropsychological approach to the study of visual functions.
