Re: auditory hemi-neglect

Ah! that's excellent, thanks - I always thought that there would turn out to be some analogue. The next step would be to turn up an analogue for blindsight

Hello Everyone:

This is a followup to Peter Lennox's post of this morning, which 
prompted the question of whether there is significant evidence for 
auditory hemi-neglect.  There are some older case studies which 
describe what might be an auditory analog of visual hemi-neglect. 
See, for example, KM Heilman & E Valenstein (1972, Auditory neglect 
in man.  Arch Neurol., 26: 32-35).  Apparently, work on the topic is 
ongoing.  See L Spierer et al. (2007, Extinction of auditory stimuli 
in hemineglect: Space versus ear.  Neuropsychologia, 45: 540-551).  I 
hope that this helps.  Kind wishes,
