This book reviews the considerable body of research on the touch skills of blind people. Emphasizing cognitive and neuroscientific approaches, it encompasses a wide-ranging discussion of the theoretical issues in the field of touch perception and blindness, and also speaks to the basic nature of spatial imagery and the importance and necessity — or lack thereof — of specific visual sensory experience for the acquisition of knowledge about space, spatial layout, and picture perception. The book will appeal to researchers and professionals with an interest in touch and blindness and a wider audience of cognitive psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists working in the field of perception.
