Visual Information Processing Paper Our bodies are an amazing machine that interpret the world we live in using different processing systems. The visual information process is a system used to perceive our environment and send this information to our brain, the processing center of the body. One of the most important and often the initial sense used in perceiving our environment is vision. Vision may be the leading prominent sense we use in perception.
Visual Information Processing Visual information processing has a big neural investment in the cortical region of the brain. This is an inherited investment, that has evolved to

Apperceptive agnosia is the inability to recognize simple shapes or replicate them, associative agnosia is the ability to recognize simple and complex shapes and be able to replicate them but the inability to recognize (name) the complex shape. These are only some of the many impairments in visual information processing. As research and science progress we answer many questions and ask many more. We develop treatments and technology to address the unanswered and better treat the answered.
Research in Visual Processing As more disorders are discovered and diagnosed, research continues evolving and developing new and improved treatments, approaches and technology. Current research shows that many impairments that were once believed to be autonomous can and are sometimes linked. Current research also shows that many of these disorders have early childhood onset. Research is now being aimed at early diagnosis for preventive and development of early and better treatment for children. Technology and artificial intelligence have had great contributions to the development of equipment for research and detection. Research has linked and identified some disorders that are often misdiagnosed or overlooked due to similarities of symptoms. The research has shown that although some symptoms may present to be the same the processes involved can differ. With technology to assist in a more comprehensive, effective and quicker accurate
