Abstract

This chapter provides a review of primary sensory deficits after right brain damage. It begins by presenting the historical basis for the conceptual divide between ‘primary’ and ‘high-level’ deficits. A number of converging studies have demonstrated that impairments such as visual field deficits, somatosensory disorders, and motor disorders, traditionally conceived as primary deficits, involve impairments of higher-order cognitive processes. The mere clinical fact that some patients show deficits on one set of tasks whereas others show deficits on other tasks does not in itself provide sufficient reason to justify a qualitative distinction between visual field deficit (VFD) and visual-spatial neglect (VSN).
