(c) Scan paths (=gaze [combined eye and head orie ents with spatial neglect (upper panel) during active visual search (black lines) as well as at rest (gray lines) as compared with a group of 1 lect (lower panel). The neglect patients show a marked bias of their active and their passive behavior toward the ipsilesional, right side (Modi hannsen, & Karnath, 2008). What is spatial neglect? re unaware of their shifted spatial egocenter and efault position. Despite variations in performance s, this spontaneous behavior appears remarkably uggests that there is a unitary, homogenous core define as “spatial neglect” (illustrated in Fig. 1). inical observations are a consequence of this core rient toward the right whenever addressed (even the left), and ignore contralesionally located peoreover, when they actively search for targets they r exploratory eye and hand movements toward space (Behrmann, Watt, Black, & Barton, 1997; , Valenstein, & Damasio, 1983; Karnath, 1994b). are precisely documented by recordings of these 1c; Karnath & Perenin, 1998; Karnath, Niemeier, 8) and are reliably measured by popular clinical ying or cancellation tasks (where individuals are numerous targets in a cluttered array) (Rorden & et al., 2011). These cortical areas also are involved in the left hemisphere when patients show spatial neglect afte hemisphere stroke (Suchan & Karnath, 2011). Findings from tract tracing, myelin staining, and dif tensor imaging techniques suggest a dense perisylvian n interconnecting these three cortical sites (Fig. 2; Karnath, the inferior parietal lobule with the lateral prefrontal cort subcomponents II/III of the superior longitudinal fascicul II/III] and the superior occipitofrontal fascicle [SOF]), later frontal cortex with superior/middle temporal cortex (via fasciculus [AF] and extreme capsule/inferior occipitofronta culus [EmC/IOF]), and superior temporal cortex with the parietal lobu...
