What is CVI?



We can only understand how the ability to recognise can be different in some people with CVI if we understand the process of recognition.

The following models and diagrams have been created to help explain the process of recognition, initially in a person without CVI. The models will then be used to explain the more complicated process of recognition when combined with CVI. As we proceed through the sections the same models will be used to illustrate examples of alternative processes for people with CVI.

The way of thinking described here is simplified, and relates to what can happen after an injury to one side of the brain or both.
