Abstract

Recent theories of psychological disorders are beginning to break down the traditional dichotomy between mental and physical processes. The present paper reports on two cases of space phobia in which this is especially apparent. Neuropsychological assessment indicated subtle disturbance in visuospatial functioning. The emotional response to this dysfunction appeared, however, to be somewhat excessive given the subtlety of the deficit. This is seen as a psychological reaction to a neuropsychological dysfunction.
