Spatial attention systems in spatial neglect.

  title={Spatial attention systems in spatial neglect.},
  author={Hans Otto Karnath},
It has been established that processes relating to 'spatial attention' are implemented at cortical level by goal-directed (top-down) and stimulus-driven (bottom-up) networks. Spatial neglect in brain-damaged individuals has been interpreted as a distinguished exemplar for a disturbance of these processes. The present paper elaborates this assumption.
