Description of Comparing the Effects of Congenital and Late Visual Impairments on Visuospatial Mental Abilities



Abstract: This study compared participants who were congenitally visually impaired and those who became visually impaired later in life in a spatial memory task. The latter showed less efficient visuospatial processes than did the former. However, these differences were of a quantitative nature only, indicating common cognitive mechanisms that can be clearly differentiated from those of people who are congenitally blind.
