Abstract

Thirteen right brain-damaged patients who were found to neglect pictures presented on the left of a display were presented the same stimuli, intermixed with foils, in a yes-no recognition test. Fifty per cent of patients claimed to have already seen one or more of the previously neglected pictures. This demonstrates that visual information that fails to access consciousness in neglect patients does retain the ability to surface as explicit memory at a later stage.
