- apperceptive mindblindness
- The German expression apperceptive Seelenbind-heit was coined in or shortly before 1890 by the German neurologist Heinrich Lissauer (18611891) to denote the inability to integrate various elements of visual perception into a single coherent whole or percept. Lissauer contrasted the notion of apperceptive mindblindness with " associative mindblindness, which he envisaged as the inability to integrate a visual percept with information from the other sensory modalities, a condition which he believed led to a failure of prelinguistic object representation. Both conditions are classified as variants of "mindblindness or visual agnosia.ReferencesLissauer, H. (1890). Ein Fall von Seelenblindheit. Archiv für Psychiatrie und Nervenkrankheiten, 21, 222-270.
