Other questions in this quiz

2. How does neuroconstructivism explain the spatial cognitive deficits in WS?

  • WS individuals impaired in spatial cognition as dorsal stream develops unusually bc WS individual does not detect visuo-spatial properties
  • Genes missing in WS also involved in anatomical development of dorsal stream pathways

3. What is the main premise of the dorsal stream deficit hypothesis?

  • Structural abnormalities in dorsal stream of WS contribute to visual-spatial deficits
  • Structural abnormalities in dorsal stream of WS interact with intact ventral to contribute to visual-spatial deficits
  • Structural abnormalities in ventral and dorsal stream of WS contribute to visual-spatial deficits
  • Structural abnormalities in ventral stream of WS contribute to visual-spatial deficits

4. What does the local-processing bias hypothesis suggest about the nature of WS visual-spatial disorder?

  • WS have issues with the global form of objects but do not struggle with fine detail
  • WS have issues with the local features of objects but do not struggle with global arrangement

5. Which cognitive phenotypes are represented in the DD between WS and SLI?

  • Language
  • Problem solving
  • Social cognition
  • Space
