Description:

The spatial neglect syndrome, defined by asymmetric attention
and action not attributed to primary motor or sensory
dysfunction and accompanied by functional disability,
is a major cause of post-stroke morbidity. In this review,
we consider the challenges and obstacles facing scientific
researches wishing to evaluate the mechanisms and effectiveness
of rehabilitation interventions. Spatial neglect is a
heterogeneous disorder, for which consensus research definitions
are not currently available, and it is unclear which of
the deficits associated with the syndrome causes subsequent
disability. We review current opinion about methods of assessment,
suggest a rational approach to selecting therapies
which requires further study, and make systems-level and
theoretical recommendations for building theory. We lastly
review some creative questions for consideration in future
research.
