JVIB: Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness

Año 2006. Número 100 (7)

Braille: Review of Research: Neuroscience and the Impact of Brain Plasticity on Braille Reading
Cheryl Kamei Hannan, print edition pp 397-413
Mental Imagery: The Effects of Visual Experience and Training in Raised-Line Materials on the Mental Spatial Imagery of Blind Persons
David Dulin and Yvette Hatwell, print edition pp 414-424
Abstract: Visual experience improved performances of blind adults in mental rotation and mental representation of the path of a spot. Congenitally blind participants with high expertise in graphic material performed better than two categories of nonexpert participants--those who became blind early in their lives versus those who became blind later in their lives--indicating that graphic expertise may compensate for the lack of visual representations. Implications for teaching are discussed
Rehabilitation: Contextual Effects of Race or Ethnicity on Acceptance for Vocational Rehabilitation of Consumers Who Are Legally Blind
Brenda S. Cavenaugh, J. Martin Giesen, and Bernard A. Steinman, print edition pp 425-436
Abstract: Race or ethnicity, demographic, and disability factors were investigated as predictors of vocational rehabilitation acceptance. Severity of disability was the strongest predictor, followed by education, a secondary disability, race or ethnicity, and age at the time of application; gender was not significant. Acceptance rates differed with specific race or ethnicity and influence of control variables. Implications for policy and research are discussed
