Some patients with hemispatial neglect show deficits in horizontal size perception. Most previous studies investigating this effect required the relative comparison of two horizontal stimuli. We examined whether the effect would also be present for single stimuli which would reflect an impairment in the computation of absolute horizontal length. Ten neglect patients, five with and five without hemianopia, and two control groups were asked to verbally judge the length of horizontal lines varying… CONTINUE READING
