In the antisaccade task, a saccade must be triggered towards the mirror location of a visual target. The neural basis required for this visual vector inversion remains unclear, although neuronal activities reflecting this process have been recorded in the monkey lateral intraparietal area. We examined a patient with a small, right-sided, posterior parietal stroke who complained of difficulty in manipulating visual information. Antisaccades were markedly hypometric rightwards but normal… CONTINUE READING
