It is characterized by an absence of any conscious vision, but stimuli presented inside its borders may nevertheless be processed. This unconscious vision includes neuroendocrine, reflexive, indirect and forced-choice responses which are mediated by the visual subsystems that escape the direct cerebral damage and the Ensuring degeneration. While extrastriate cortical… CONTINUE READING
