Temporary remission of left hemianesthesia after vestibular stimulation. A sensory neglect phenomenon.

Author information

Istituto di Clinica Neurologica, Università di Milano.


In three right-brain damaged patients with contralesional neglect vestibular stimulation induced a temporary remission of left hemianesthesia, in addition to the well-known transient recovery of extrapersonal and personal neglect. These findings indicate that in neglect patients attentional factors may play an important role in producing apparently "primary" sensory deficits, which may be interpreted in terms of defective access to conscious processing.
