In order to study auditory spatial localization in subjects with posterior damage involving the parietal lobe, we investigated their manual pointing performances to linguistic and white noise signals distributed over six sound sources situated in the anterior auditory field at ear level. The results showed: (1) A striking difference between patterns of(More)
Head turning and manual pointing to auditory targets have been studied in normal subjects and in subjects with right parietal damage. Important differences were found between these two types of movement. (1) In brain-damaged subjects, audiospatial manual pointing deficit patterns and audiospatial head turning deficit patterns were dissociated. Moreover,(More)
The inferior colliculus was selected as a brain stem site for study of neural grafting and identification of calcium binding proteins. Unilateral ablation sites of eight midbrain inferior colliculus in adult Long-Evans rats were implanted with E17-18 caudal tectum. After 2 to 9 months animals were sacrificed and sections reacted using antibodies for(More)
In order to test the existence of an hemispheric asymmetry at a basic level of spatial information processing, six right handed and six left handed normal subjects were submitted to a manual pointing task to auditory targets. Results showed a shift in perceived target position according to the hand used for pointing, a striking asymmetry between the two(More)
