Comparative Neuropsychology

Malcolm A. Jeeves

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the one aspect of cognitive functioning in callosal agenesis that has received most attention from neuropsychologists. The research to be reviewed addresses not only questions about the functioning of the corpus callosum but also of the anterior commissure and subcortical pathways. It also presents some new, as yet unpublished, results specifically studying interhemispheric visual integration in callosal agenesis and for the first time, probably, offers, very speculatively, a possible role for the Probst bundles. These are groups of cortical neurones found only in acallosal brains, which project abnormally in a longitudinal direction within one hemisphere.

Keywords:   visual integration, callosal agenesis, cognitive functioning, corpus callosum, anterior commissure, subcortical pathways
