The Issue of Spatial Neglect
Abstract
This paper looks at five scholarly articles that explore the issue of spatial neglect and how it impacts people and whether it can be properly resolved. The paper will outline these studies and will note their deficiencies as well as any insights they may offer. The paper contends that the current literature is far too narrow in scope and offers descriptive insights rather than prescriptive insights that might help sufferers and their families. The research also falls short because there is little effort undertaken to quantify what specific events or features within the brain are responsible for various symptoms or for various manifestations.
