Cueing in a Case of Neglect: Modality and Automaticity Effects
Riddoch MJ., Humphreys GW., Burroughs E., Luckhurst L., Bateman A., Hill S.
We report the effects of different forms of cue on a patient who shows left neglect when processing single objects and right neglect when addressing separate actions to independent objects (Riddoch et al. this issue). Visual cues were found to reduce neglect within single objects but not between separate objects; motor cues reduced neglect between separate objects but not within single objects. We discuss the relevance of these independent cueing effects for understanding the nature of the spatial deficit within this patient, and for attempts to rehabilitate neglect by cueing. © 1995, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
