Nonsensory neglect

Academic Article


  • Five monkeys trained to perform with the extremity contralateral to a stimulus had unilateral neglect induced by frontal and reticular formation lesions. Postoperatively the performance of the animals was abnormal only on ipsilateral stimulation, which suggests that the mechanism underlying neglect in these subjects is not deafferentation or sensory inattention but a defect of intention.
