Recognizing left-right reversal for what it is

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Detecting a deviation from a schema is most often perceptual. The process of accounting for the deviation, on the other hand, is not mandatory and might require post-perceptual processing. I agree with Laurent (2002) that recognizing as left-right inversion the deviation of a mirror view from the schema of frontal encounter might sometimes require post-perceptual processing, especially when it concerns the viewer's own body, let alone when it is done for the first time.
