Prism adaptation can improve contralesional tactile perception in neglect.
1829 - 1831.
The authors show that prismatic adaptation can reduce tactile inattention in stroke patients with unilateral neglect. Four patients with visuospatial neglect and tactile extinction underwent 10-minute application of 20degrees right-shifting prismatic lenses during pointing. This improved contralesional tactile perception in all patients, even for a task requiring no exploration or spatial motor responses. This finding suggests a potential role for prismatic adaptation in the rehabilitation of multiple sensory modalities in patients with neglect.
