Lesions of the posterior parietal cortex in humans and monkeys result in a spatial neglect syndrome characterized by defects in visual-spatial perception, oculomotor function, and directing visual attention. Although symptoms of spatial neglect can result from lesions to other cortical and subcortical areas, patients with posterior parietal lesions are particularly impaired in their ability to disengage and reorient visual attention. Neurophysiological experiments in area 7a of behaving monkeys… CONTINUE READING
