Spatial neglect and motion

Duration: 2012-2015

The aim of this PhD-Project is to study the relationship between spatial neglect and motion. We analyze how visual attention in neglect is influenced by motion on the basis of three experiments that increasingly converge toward real-life situations (computerized cancellation task versus free exploration task versus virtual reality task). Our main question focuses on how patients with neglect (in comparison to healthy controls) process both static and dynamic, i.e. moving stimuli.
