- associative mindblindness
- A term that was coined in or shortly before 1890 by the German neurologist Heinrich Lissauer (1861-1891) to denote the inability to integrate a visual percept with information from the other sensory modalities, entailing a failure of prelin-guistic object representation. Lissauer used the notion of associative mindblindness in opposition to the notion of "apperceptive mindblind-ness, which was conceptualized by him as the inability to integrate various visual elements into a single coherent whole or percept. 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.
