visual cortex is destroyed. This accounts for the right homonymous hemianopia. All visual input, then, must be processed initially by the right visual cortex. The results of this processing must then be transferred to the left angular gyrus for orthographic processing. However, this relay of the information is not possible because the lesion also damages the splenium of the corpus callosum, which connects the hemispheres in the posterior part of the brain, or the lesion damages the fibers adjacent to the angular gyrus within the left hemisphere. In either case, the visual information cannot reach the left angular gyrus, and reading fails (Table IV).
