Abstract

Visuoperceptual disruptions are among the most common, and most debilitating, of the aftereffects following stroke or head injury. Visuospatial neglect in particular, which frequently occurs as a result of insult to the right cerebral hemisphere, has a variety of implications for patient welfare and outcome. And while there exists a great deal of useful information in the area of visual neglect, it is spread out amongst near-countless journal articles, book chapters, and workshop summaries. Thus, it is the purpose of this paper to provide an overview of various topics relating to visuospatial disturbances. Areas covered include theories on sequelae and neuropathology, common direct and indirect complications, rates and types of recovery, past and current trends in assessment and rehabilitation techniques, and thoughts on directions for future research.
