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 Dr. Peter Lennox S.P.A.R.G.

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.
