How can domain general theories of categorization account for category-specific deficits found in neuropsychological studies?

  E-mail   Print

Neuropsychological evidence indicates that brain damage can lead to object-recognition deficits in specific category domains (e.g., tools, animals). It has been argued that currently popular theories of categorization are designed to account for data across all domains (i.e., are domain general), and that it is unclear whether these theories can account for domain-specific deficits. Can domain-general theories of categorization explain category-specific deficits?
