Behavioral tasks requiring visual-spatial discrimination such as line bisection are used clinically to assess right hemisphere function, yet the anatomical substrate of line bisection has yet to be elucidated by functional imaging. In the current study, nine right-handed, healthy adult subjects underwent split-dose technetium-99m-hexamethylpropylene amine oxime single photon emission tomography during performance of two visual tasks. Statistical parametric maps that represented significant… CONTINUE READING
