    In most right-handed people, language and motor functions are more reliant on systems of the left hemisphere while several non-linguistic visuo-spatial and attentional processes depend more on the right hemisphere. The rare exceptions to these rules provide important clues as to what functions...

    The neural mechanisms underlying spatial neglect are still disputed. Abnormal left parietal hyperactivation is proposed to lead to the rightward attentional bias, a clinical hallmark of neglect. Extinction, another deficit of visuospatial attention, is regarded as either a ‘mild’...

    The syndrome of visuospatial neglect is a common consequence of unilateral brain injury. It is most often associated with stroke and is more severe and persistent following right hemisphere damage, with reported frequencies in the acute stage of up to 80%. Neglect is primarily a disorder of...

    The localization of low-frequency sounds mainly relies on the processing of microsecond temporal disparities between the ears, since low frequencies produce little or no interaural energy differences. The overall auditory cortical response to low-frequency sounds is largely symmetrical between...

    The article examines the deficits in speech intonation in patients sustaining unilateral brain damage. Thirteen patients participated in the study.

    SPATIAL NEGLECT IS A RELATIVELY COMMON FINDING IN PATIENTS who have suffered a right-hemisphere acute stroke and has the potential to severely affect daily functioning and quality of life. Visuo-spatial neglect may be measured using clinical tests such as letter cancellation, but such tasks are...
