Comparative Neuropsychology

Among the behavioural disorders found in patients with hemispheric dysfunction, unilateral visual neglect is one of the most striking. The symptoms, although many and various, always include a tendency to ignore objects and parts of objects on the left (i.e. contralesional) side of the patient's egocentric space. In its most extreme forms, a patient may deny that the involved limbs are his own and object to their presence in his hospital bed. Other patients may fail to shave or dress the neglected side.

Keywords:   visuospatial neglect, behavioural disorders, hemispheric dysfunction, egocentric space, limbs
