Abstract

To verify the role of interhemispheric influences on manifestations of neglect, the authors investigated the effects of a transient repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS)-induced disruption of the unaffected hemisphere on contralesional visuospatial neglect in two left- and five right-brain-damaged patients. Parietal rTMS of the unaffected hemisphere during the execution of a computerized task of bisected line's length judgment transiently decreased the magnitude of neglect as expressed in the number of error.
