Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate whether it is possible to strengthen the rehabilitation of spatial hemineglect by combining standard training for spatial scanning with optokinetic stimulation. A simple randomized design was used: one group of neglect patients was treated with a combination of the two techniques, and a second group received only the standard treatment. Both treatments were given for six consecutive weeks and produced significant improvements. However, addition of the optokinetic stimulation did not improve the patients' performance. Also, none of the independent variables (i.e., presence/absence of hemianopia) predicted the positive effect occasionally observed in individual patients.
