 Abstract: To examine the nature of perceptual representation this paper addresses how the presence of holes in the visual field affects human visual perception. The holes in question are due to a lack of visual information which could result from damage to the eye or brain, the underlying biological structure of the visual system, or experimental procedures designed to simulate blind spots. We review evidence for how the brain copes with missing information, and discuss the philosophical debate surrounding the ‘filling-in’ of this information.
