Visual Agnosia

Visual agnosia is a particular disorder that peaked me interest. I checked on the john jay library site and found a particularly interesting article on visual agnosia with the added dimension of the women being studied, also having been poisoned by carbon monoxide. The article details the events that transpired the day the women was poisoned and the profound visual agnosia the women was left with. There are many forms of visual agnosia that leave the suffer unable to interpret visual stimuli. This 34 year old women could only make out shapes, she had no clue as to what objects were in front of her.
