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, Dennis -- Dennis P.
