This chapter outlines the contribution of the parietal cortex to spatial cognition. It discusses the structure and function in spatial attention and spatial representation of the parietal higher order areas of the dorsal visual stream and describes spatial information processing in the parietal lobe. The chapter considers the neuropsychological syndromes that result from parietal lesions, such as visual neglect, Balint's syndrome, and Gerstmann's syndrome in order to provide a better understanding of the functions of the parietal cortex in spatial cognitive functions.

Keywords:   parietal cortex, spatial cognition, spatial attention, spatial representation, visual stream, parietal lobe, parietal lesions, visual neglect, Balint's syndrome, Gerstmann's syndrome
