Abstract / Description of output

Signor Piazza, a patient with a left parieto-occipital haemorrhage and a right thalamic stroke, showed severe right personal neglect (e.g. touching own body parts) and right perceptual neglect in tasks with (e.g. cancelling tasks) or without (e.g. description of a complex picture) motor response. He had also right-sided neglect dyslexia (including single words), without language impairments. However, the patient also presented with a clear left-sided deficit in the representational domain (e.g. imagery tasks). Signor Piazza's pattern of performance suggests dissociation between imagery and perception within the neglect syndrome.
