Hemianopic reading and visual exploration impairments are well-known clinical phenomena. Yet, it is unclear whether they are primarily caused by the hemianopic visual field defect itself or by additional brain injury preventing efficient spontaneous oculomotor adaptation. To establish the extent to which these impairments are visually elicited we simulated unilateral homonymous hemianopia in healthy participants, using a gaze-contingent display paradigm, and investigated its effect on reading… CONTINUE READING
