This chapter investigates the consequences of the so-called bottom-up visual adaptation for spatial cognition. The results indicate that the sensorimotor modifications induced by prism adaptation (PA) can improve different manifestations of the unilateral neglect syndrome, and most demonstrations of this improvement appear to affect spatial manifestations in an egocentric frame of reference. The findings also suggest that positive effects of PA on neglect are due not only to a reduction of the rightward attentional bias, but are also consecutive to the improvement of visuo-spatial functions.

Keywords:   visual adaptation, spatial cognition, prism adaptation, sensorimotor modifications, neglect, attentional bias, visuo-spatial functions
