In the cuing section of the MINT instructions, third paragraph, it says, "Sometimes a participant will give a response that indicates lack of visual recognition of the object, that is, misperception (e.g., focusing only on the flame at the top of the candle and saying "fire" or misperceiving the twigs in the nest and saying "hair"). In that instance, a semantic cue should be given." It seems that the example about the flame would be more appropriately cued in accord with Prompt 6 on the following page, where the participant is said to focus on one part of the picture, or the wrong part of the picture, leading the examiner to prompt, "What is the whole thing called?". Can you please say which of these two prompts would be provided?
The flame is a good example of failure of visual recognition (e.g., simultanagnosia). Certainly the flame could also represent a part-whole/executive type error but also a visual misperception. Please use your best judgment.
