VISUAL AGNOSIA

an incapacity to identify visual stimulants, like items. This might be because of a flaw in visual comprehension, or to aspects other than perceptual disability. The condition is viewed in human beings with brain lesions, even though a like impact has been documented in non-human animals, who need to touch items to be able to recognize or name them.

VISUAL AGNOSIA: "Visual agnosia is more commonly known as blindness."
