This study was designed to increase the knowledge on neuropsychological diagnosis of cerebral visual dysfunction ('cerebral visual impairment') in children with brain damage or an increased risk of brain damage, as well as to evaluate available diagnostic methods. We focused on motion perception and other dorsal stream functions and on the age group 4 to 7 years.
