Abstract

A test of immediate visual-spatial memory was administered to 71 normal controls, 140 right and 219 left brain-damaged patients, in order to check if immediate visual recognition is lowered chiefly by an aphasic or by a perceptual disorder. Results showed that both a visual field defect and, even more, a language disturbance impair visual recognition of brain-damaged patiens.
