Intact implicit representation of object 3D structure in object agnosia. Academic Article uri icon


  • The representation of object 3D structure in the human brain is fundamental for the recognition and visuomotor control of objects. Accordingly, multiple cortical regions along the dorsal and ventral visual streams have been shown to exhibit sensitivity to object structure. To examine the contribution of regions in the ventral stream to processing object 3D structure, we tested five patients with focal damage in the right ventral visual cortex. In a series of behavioral experiments, in which spatially possible and impossible objects were …
