In this single volume, information on blindness derived from many research areas is explained and critically evaluated. Among the subjects covered are: causes of blindness; blindness and the brain; effects of blindness on perception and cognition; attitudes toward blindness; the rehabilitation process; and blindness in infancy and childhood. For those directly involved or interested in the subject of blindness, Professor Hollins gathers all the basic information on blindness into a single source. Uniting research and data produced in different disciplines, Understanding Blindness advocates empiricism and experimental science and describes the methodologies as well as the experiments. Understanding Blindness is written for readers with no prior experience or technical background in the study of blindness, defining terms and explaining technical concepts as they are introduced.


Contents: Blindness and the Eye. Blindness and the Brain. Blindness and Perception. Blindness and Cognition. Attitudes and Emotional Reactions to Blindness. The Rehabilitation Process. The Blind Child.
