Abstract

Subjects with hemispatial neglect often exhibit representational neglect: a failure to report details from the left side of mentally visualized images. This failure could reflect impaired ability to generate the left side of the mental image, or it could reflect failure to explore the left side of a normally generated mental image. When subjects with hemispatial neglect look at pictures or drawings, their attention tends to be drawn to objects on the right side, thereby aggravating their failure to explore the left side. If representational neglect represents a failure to explore the left side of a normally generated mental visual image, then it should be improved by blindfolding, which removes the attention-catching right-sided stimuli. However, if representational neglect represents a failure to generate the left side of the mental visual image, then blindfolding should have little impact on reporting of details of the image.
