We examined patients with cerebral hemorrhage to determine the correlations between unilateral spatial neglect (USN) and neurological deficits, the site of lesions, and performance on activities of daily living (ADL) tests at discharge. Thirty-two right-handed patients with right hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage (putamen 16, thalamus 16) were examined for neurological and neuropsychological deficits in addition to USN, and they received CT scans. USN was revealed in 26 of the patients (81… CONTINUE READING
