Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper does not mean to be an exhaustive review of neglect. We will focus only on those aspects of the phenomenon that are often overlooked in the clinical neuropsychological setting but can be of some relevance in rehabilitation. After giving a definition of neglect, and setting it against its historical background, we will discuss in turn motor neglect, personal neglect, directional hypokinesia and their respective sets of diagnostic tests. We will round off our (far from comprehensive) review by debating some of the recent findings in the cognitive rehabilitation of neglect.
