Recent evidence suggests the possibility that not all action modes depend on dorsal visual stream processing but that off-line nontarget-directed actions, such as antipointing, require additional and even distinct neural networks when compared with target-directed online actions. Here, we explored this potential dissociation in a group of 11 patients with left visual neglect, a syndrome characterized by a loss of awareness of the contralesional side of space.
