Three patients with a right hemisphere lesion and marked left-sided neglect without visual field defects were asked to detect and identify stimuli which were tachistoscopically presented in the left or right visual half-field. Neglect of stimuli presented in the contralesional left visual field, which was observed when the patient's body was in a normal upright position with trunk, head and gaze oriented straight ahead to the middle of the projection screen, could be reduced by vibrating the… CONTINUE READING
