This book explores the effect that visual problems have on human cognitive development and functioning. It discusses visual perception, imagery, and the working memory relationship to determine the role of normal vision on mental imagery, focusing on studying the effect of the absence of the visual sense on the supramodal mechanisms. The chapter also presents a study of the visual experience, which is important for proper cognitive development. The variables for the duration of the visual deficit and sensorial deprivation onset-time that may affect the development and performance of human cognitive are explored. A study of visually impaired people is presented to explore the capacity of the brain to compensate for one impaired sensory organ through other functioning sensory organs.
