Ipsilateral neglect in a patient following a unilateral frontal lesion

Academic Article


  • Using a crossed-response task it has been demonstrated that as a patient with unilateral frontal lesion recovers from visual inattention, he or she may inappropriately saccade to contralateral stimuli (visual grasp). We report a patient with a right frontallesion who showed a similar phenomenon on sequential line bisection tasks. On day 1 he showed left-sided neglect on line bisections that enhanced with sequential trials. On day 5 he exhibited right-sided neglect (ipsilateral neglect) on line bisection tasks that also enhanced with repeated trials. © 1991 American Academy of Neurology.
