Straight ahead in spatial neglect: evidence that space is shifted, not rotated.

Abstract : The egocentric reference appears to be altered in neglect patients, as evidenced by an ipsilesional error when pointing straight ahead. In this study, patients with right brain damage used a horizontal rod to show this straight-ahead direction. There was a systematic rightward translation of the rod, and no clockwise rotation occurred in five of six neglect patients. The results suggest a preferential rightward translation of space representation in neglect.
