Visual neglect is a debilitating medical condition has attracted the interest of clinicians and neuroscientists given its frequency (25–30% of right hemisphere strokes), significant impact on health and rehabilitation services, and providing neuropsychological insights for human visual perception, visuo-motor control, and spatial attention. Viewed as a deficit in attention, intention, global–local processing, spatial memory, and mental representation, neglect has been shown to result from the interplay of damage to several different neurocognitive systems (particularly posterior parietal cortex) involved in conscious awareness, many of which share little in common other than a contralesional gradient of increasing impairment, with comparatively well-preserved performance on the ipsilesional side of space.
