Brain damage often results in visual defects and/or higher order visuo-spatial disorders including the syndromes of unilateral neglect and extinction. These syndromes and their associated behavioral sequelae are described along with several standard assessments and methods for behaviorally quantifying such deficits. In particular, the advantages of the reaction time measures commonly used by cognitive neuroscientists are surveyed. In order to illustrate how reaction time measures can be used to… CONTINUE READING
