Abstract

Both behavioral and electrophysiological methods were used to assess altitudinal neglect. In the first experiment, 100 patients with neglect completed Albert's Barrage test. Most omissions were present in the lower left quadrant. In 16 patients, visual evoked potentials to stimuli in the four quadrants were separately recorded (Exp. 2). Latencies in the lower left quadrant were longer than those in the other quadrants. A third experiment provided electrophysiological normative data from 13 young normal subjects. Overall, the results showed that both the horizontal and vertical dimensions of space are affected in neglect patients.
