    Abstract

    We have recently reported that patients with hemispatial neglect demonstrate increased terminal errors when performing delayed leftward reaches and that right-brain damaged patients (irrespective of neglect) take longer to complete their movements [Rossit, S., Muir, K., Reeves, I., Duncan, G., Birschel, P., & Harvey, M. (2009). Immediate and delayed reaching in hemispatial neglect. Neuropsychologiaa 47, 1563–1573]. Here we conducted an initial voxel-based lesion-symptom analysis to examine the neural basis of such deficits in 21 right-brain damaged subjects with 11 patients suffering from hemispatial neglect (2 more than in Rossit et al. [Rossit S., Muir K., Reeves I., Duncan, G., Birschel, P., & Harvey, M. (2009).
