Mental Imagery in Congenitally Blind Children.
Anderson, David W.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v78 n5 p206-10 May 1984
The study of blind children's (ages 3-9) memory of objects was invested with personalized meaning related to previous encounters with the objects. The language they used reflected that experience and their form of mental representation rather than their knowledge of the language used by sighted people. (CL)
