    Abstract

    In this study we applied visuomotor feedback and control training to a group of patients suffering from hemispatial neglect. The training was based on the established theoretical approach by Milner andGoodale [8]. This model of vision proposes that thereare two major parallel visual systems within the brain: the occipito-temporal ‘ventral stream’ which provides the hardware for analysing the visual input to furnish a rich representation of the scene; and the occipito-parietal ‘dorsal stream’ (in particular the superior pari-etal lobe) which mediates the transformation of visual inputs into action.
