It has been shown that unilateral left neglect can be significantly improved for a short time after a short period of adaptation to a prismatic shift of the visual field to the right. In neuropsychological studies, however, there is no evidence demonstrating long-lasting effects following treatment by prism adaptation (PA). The first aim of the present(More)
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.

Far (extrapersonal) and near (peripersonal) spaces are behaviorally defined as the space outside the hand-reaching distance and the space within the hand-reaching distance. Animal and human studies have confirmed this distinction, showing that space is not homogeneously represented in the brain. In this paper we demonstrate that the coding of space as "far"(More)
Crossmodal spatial integration between auditory and visual stimuli is a common phenomenon in space perception. The principles underlying such integration have been outlined by neurophysiological and behavioral studies in animals; this study investigated whether the integrative effects observed in animals also apply to humans. In this experiment we(More)
We have studied the distortion of perceived time in a patient with left neglect. This patient consistently over-estimated the duration of stimuli in the neglected space. Overestimation was observed both with an interval comparison (300/700 ms) and with a time production (1 s) paradigm. We suggest that encoding duration in the hundreds of milliseconds range(More)
Neurophysiological studies have shown in animals that a sudden sound enhanced perceptual processing of subsequent visual stimuli. In the present study, we explored the possibility that such enhancement also exists in humans and can be explained through crossmodal integration effects, whereby the interaction occurs at the level of bimodal neurons.

Previous studies demonstrated the human ability to implicitly recognize their own body. When submitted to a visual matching task, participants showed the so-called self-advantage, that is, a better performance with self rather than others' body or body parts. Here, we investigated whether the body self-advantage relies upon a motor representation of one's(More)
Despite the fact that visual extinction is widely considered a space-based disturbance of selective attention, there has been little theoretical consensus about the nature of its pathogenic mechanism. A specific disruption in the ability to disengage attention from ipsilesional stimuli, or a loss of weight with which contralesional objects compete for(More)
Prism adaptation (PA) has been demonstrated to be effective in improving hemispatial neglect. However not all patients seem to benefit from this procedure. Thus, the objective of the present work is to provide behavioural and neuroanatomical predictors of recovery by exploring the reorganization of low-order visuo-motor behaviour and high-order(More)
