striate pathways account for TN's intact navigation skills. We investigated the residual vision for locomotion in TN, an unusual subject as the only available case in the literature with selective bilateral occipital damage (but see also [1] for a report on intact fear conditioning in a similar patient). TN suffered the first stroke that damaged his occipital cortex unilaterally, and some 36 days later a second stroke occurred that damaged the occipital cortex of the other hemisphere (Figure 1A… CONTINUE READING
