We report a single case study of a patient 'Alice' who, following a series of ischaemic attacks, became a mirror reader and mirror writer. Alice read mirror-reversed words much more efficiently than conventionally presented items. Additional tests revealed a mirror reversal of many non-verbal, spatial representations including clock faces, geometric figures and country outlines. Although Alice showed more efficient right-left than left-right scanning, this scanning bias was not able to account for all her mirror symptoms. Possible theoretical interpretations of Alice's pattern of symptoms are discussed.
