Hemispatial neglect is usually defined as failure to attend to the contralesional side of space.An approach to the study of neglect has been that to evaluate eye movement patterns ofneglect patients, assuming that eye movements are a valid indicator of direction of theirspatial attention. Eye movements have been analyzed while patients, simultaneously,performed different kinds of tasks, such as line bisection, visual search, text reading, scenesand face viewing. Overall, these studies showed that in neglect patients visual fixations andattention are oriented preferentially towards the ipsilesional side and there was a marked lackof active exploration of the contralesional side. © 2011 Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
