Abstract

Unilateral visual neglect affects a very large proportion of patients immediately after stroke. The presence of neglect has been found to be the major determinant of recovery of everyday function (Denes, Semenza, Stoppa & Lis, 1982). Interventions for the rehabilitation of neglect are not very effective. Picking up from the suggestions of Robertson, Halligan & Marshall (1993) potential ways forward employing VR technology are discussed.
