Associative agnosia is an inability to identify objects even with apparent perception and knowledge of them.
Individuals with associative agnosia can copy or match simple figures, indicating that they can perceive objects correctly.
In contrast, associative agnosia is a type of agnosia where perception occurs but recognition still does not occur.
If a person correctly perceives the forms and has knowledge of the objects, but cannot identify the objects, they have associative agnosia.
Because primary visual processing was intact, Lissauer considered the possible diagnostic distinction between deficits in perception ( apperceptive agnosia ) and in recognition ( associative agnosia ).
