Unilateral spatial neglect (USN) is a highly prevalent post-stroke deficit. Currently, there is no gold standard USN assessment which encompasses the heterogeneity of this disorder and that is sensitive to detect mild deficits. Similarly, there is a limited number of high quality studies suggesting that conventional USN treatments are effective in improving functional outcomes and reducing disability. Virtual reality (VR) provides enhanced methods for USN assessment and treatment. To establish… CONTINUE READING
