Space anisometry in unilateral neglect
This chapter discusses a recent series of experiments that show neglect patients reproduced horizontal extents on either side of a perceived or remembered extent (the ‘model’) and comments on their results, except for those investigations in which the patients were only asked to generate contralesional extents. The results of the latter investigations have unquestionable points of interest, but their explanatory potential is less complete. In conclusion, what has been learned from recent research on horizontal extent reproduction in unilateral neglect urges reconsideration of former theories about a disorder that still remains largely elusive, despite the impressive increase of contributions following the publication of the remarkable volume edited by Weinstein and Friedland in 1977.
