BACKGROUND The space closely surrounding the body, near peripersonal space, is represented through multisensory coding, as witnessed by the spatial distribution of visual-tactile extinction in brain-damaged patients. Typically, tactile stimuli delivered on the contralesional hand are more severely extinguished by visual stimuli presented near to than far from the ipsilesional hand. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the near peripersonal space is a unitary multisensory representation of the… CONTINUE READING
