Primary Investigator: ‘InSIght – Information from Symbols and Illustrations: how to get it without vision’
* How the sense modalities perceive and process information - what are they attentive / not attentive to?
* Uni-, cross- and multimodality
* What happens when the dominant sense modality needs replacing e.g. (when vision needs replacing) because of sight loss?
‘You people who can see attach such an absurd importance to your eyes! I set my touch, my dear, against your eyes, as much the most trustworthy, and much the most intelligent sense of the two.’ (Wilkie Collins , cited in C. Peters ed., Poor Miss Finch, p. 220. Oxford: Oxford University Press.)
