Unilateral neglect may be due to attentional bias: an exaggerated tendency to orient in an ipsilesional direction. Likewise, cases of vertical neglect suggest the existence of vertical attentional biases. This article reports evidence of upward biases in neurologically intact observers. In 5 experiments, observers performed a visual line-bisection task by judging the location of a gap along a tachistoscopically presented vertical line. The upward bias was influenced by attentional cues and was… CONTINUE READING
