Re: auditory hemi-neglect


You might also want to look into Sophie Scott's research at UCL. I distinctly remember a paper of hers (It might have been in an edited book) in which she showed unilateral auditory neglect using a dichotic method. However, I cannot find the reference on her web site now.

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,
