They tend to invent an explanation, and they necessarily don’t lie. 8.Provide a detailed description of spatial neglect. Spatial neglect is a mental problem or syndrome which arises as a result of injury to the brain, particularly one side of the brain. The patient or victim usually fails to respond accurately, report as required or orient stimuli. The damage to the brain parts is generally selective and couldaffect specific areas of vision, sensation or deficit in visual and movement coordination. The problems usually affect vision stimuli, and coordination responses such as a person with spatial neglect fail to reply to a ball thrown at him or shaking the hand immediately or even rescuing a

If spatial neglect effects the side of the hemisphere it becomes hemispatial neglect. The part mainly affected is the right side of the brain, where cases of unilateral injuries and strokes arise due to damage to the cerebral hemisphere in many accidents and injuries. If the injury is severe to a critical level of 80%, visual neglect occurs within the left side of space within the visibility. It is not a must that injuries cause spatial neglect but also massive strokes or damage toarteries of the middle section of the brain due to variegated nature resulting from such ruptures. People suffering from massive stroke tend to exhibit less if traits common for spatial neglect due to progressiveness aspects.The cause of the spatial neglect ranges from trauma, neurodegenerative diseases, and neoplasia in many instances. The cases of right hemispheric stroke are common, and hence, casesof spatial neglect for these cases in the united states stand at 82%, while the average chances of anyone with stoke developing spatial neglect is 50% (Halligan, 2014). The neglect occurring after stroke is longer and usually have a longer-lasting effect in many instances. In the united states, cases of spatial and abandonment and hemispatial neglect are due to stroke and tend to affect the right-hand side than left-hand side. 9.Describe the difference between positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia and give some examples of each.Schizophrenia is a mental disorder in which the patient suffering from does not know himself or herself. The experience of a schizophrenic person is grounded in the perceptions that are not realistic, but the patient feels that it is real. Schizophrenia can be either positive or
