Part I: The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat 1. Dr. P’s visual system was working normally, although this brain was not allowing him to perceive things correctly. Dr. P visited an ophthalmologist, who said that his eyes work properly, but that there is a problem with the parts of his brain associated with vision, causing him perceive objects as different things than they actually are. Because Dr. P was able to see objects and identify where they are, it show that the optic nerve and optic tract, sending information from the eye to the brain, are working properly, and that there is just a problem with the region of the brain important for object identification. The optic nerve takes information collected by the photoreceptors in the eye and pass the information to the optic tract, which then sends information to the brain where the information is processed. 2. Dr. P’s ventral stream of visual processing was damaged from his stroke. He was always able to know where an object was that he was looking at, but he was unable to what the object was. Dr. P mistakenly thought fire hydrants were his students, though his shoe was his foot, and mistook his wife for a hat. He was unable to recognize himself, his friends, or his family in pictures. Dr. P is able to correctly understand where things were located, meaning his dorsal stream in his parietal lobe was working properly. For example, although he though he did not know what the shoe was, mistaking it for his foot, he knew where it was located.

3. Dr. P was unaware of the brain damage he was suffering from. He was unaware that anything was wrong with him and that his brain was not working properly, causing him to perceive the world differently than everyone else. Everyone else around him was aware of his condition

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
