OBJECTIVE To assess the relative frequency of occurrence of motor, perceptual, peripersonal, and personal neglect subtypes, the association of neglect and other related deficits (e.g., deficient nonlateralized attention, anosognosia), and the neuroanatomic substrates of neglect in patients with right hemisphere stroke in rehabilitation settings.

Consistent with neurophysiological findings showing expansion of the visual RF of visuo-tactile neurons along the rake used by monkeys to retrieve out-of-hand-reach objects (Iriki, Tanaka, & Iwamura, 1996), we have previously shown that also in humans the use of a tool can increase the spatial extent of the representation of peri-hand space, as revealed by(More)
Sensorimotor adaptation ensures movement accuracy despite continuously changing environment and body. Adaptation of saccadic eye movements is a classical model of sensorimotor adaptation. Beside the well-established role of the brainstem-cerebellum in the adaptation of reactive saccades (RSs), the cerebral cortex has been suggested to be involved in the(More)
This paper presents an upper extremity exoskeleton with an original application in neuroscience. The novelty of this study is the investigation of the self-advantage phenomenon under various experimental conditions. Usually this kind of experiments lies only on human visual ability to explicitly and/or implicitly recognize their own arm movements. Using an(More)
