    Patients with neglect fail to report, respond to, or orient to stimuli presented on the opposite side of the brain lesion. Spatial neglect is a multi-componential syndrome and many of its symptoms and signs need specific testing to detect their different clinical manifestations. Given that...

    Objectives: Visuo-spatial neglect and vestibular disorders have common clinical findings and involve the same cortical areas. We questioned (1) whether visuo-spatial hemineglect is not only a disorder of spatial attention but may also reflect a disorder of higher cortical vestibular function...

    Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a condition with an increased risk for developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). Presently, gender differences are neglected in the assessment of MCI and AD. We examined verbal and visuospatial episodic memory in 143 subjects diagnosed as healthy controls...

    Sex differences on visuospatial tests are among the most reliably replicated. It is unclear to what extent these performance differences reflect underlying differences in skills or testing factors. To assess whether testing medium and response format affect visuospatial sex differences,...

    Recent studies showed that non-invasive brain stimulation methods, such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can improve the symptoms of neglect in stroke patients. Here, we adopted this approach to improve visuo-spatial deficit in a patient with traumatic brain injury (TBI)...
