The subjective visual vertical (SVV) was investigated in right brain–damaged (RBD) patients with pusher syndrome (PS) which is thought to stem from an erroneous perception of body orientation. The participants, sitting or lying, had to align a luminous rod with gravity. The task was performed in darkness with the rod centred to the body, or placed in the left (neglected) or in the right hemispace. The error, negligible in the control group (+0.3°; n = 6) and mild in the nonneglect non–pusher… CONTINUE READING
