Early Experience and Visual Information Processing in Perceptual and Reading Disorders; Proceedings of a Conference Held October 27-30, 1968, at Lake Mohonk, New York, in Association with the Committee on Brain Sciences, Div. of Medical Sciences, National Research Council.
Young, Francis A., Ed.; Lindsley, Donald B., Ed.
This book brings together papers presented at a conference on early experience and visual information processing in perceptual and reading disorders sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences. The goal of the conference was to integrate basic knowledge of structure and mechanisms of eye and brain with their function and their behavioral roles in perception, with the focus on underlying factors that may contribute to reading disorders. The first section discusses topics related to the role of the visual system: optical and oculomotor, retinal, and central neural factors. The second section discusses attentional and perceptual mechanisms. The third section discusses early experience and learning in visual information processing. The fourth section discusses the role of information processing in perceptual and reading disabilities. The fifth and final section discusses management of children with perceptual and reading disabilities. The introduction is written by Donald Lindsley and Francis Young. Individual papers are written by such authors as Jeanne Chall, Robert Boynton, Robert Doty, Roger Sperry, Richard Jung, George Sperling, Ira Hirsh, Merton Flom, William Mason, Robert Fantz, and H. Burtt Richardson, Jr. (TS)
