Visual Neglect After a Stroke

A three-part DVD education series depicting aspects of visual neglect from uncommon perspectives. Filmed and produced at Oxford Medical Illustration, Oxford, England. Written & presented by Dr. Peter Halligan, Neuropsychologist. US and Canadian orders only. All fees in US Dollars. The series is broken into three parts:

  • Illustrations of Visual Neglect
  • Hemiplegia after a stroke is often complicated by the presence of deficits in visual perception. In particular, visual neglect, a puzzling impairment of spatial attention, has been shown to influence functional recovery and active participation in rehabilitation. Patients with severe neglect behave as if they were selectively ignoring one side of space. Within this video are several examples of neglect behavior in drawing, copying and constructional tasks. It is a seldom-seen opportunity to experience and under-stand visual neglect from the patient's perspective. A 2-page -- reproducible “Student Study Guide” is included for use as a handout for participants during an in-service or educational training.

  • The Experience of Visual Neglect
  • Many patients who suffer stroke have to overcome a variety of behavioral problems which effect the quality of life of their daily lives. Helping such patients to cope successfully with the effects of their stroke requires the recognition not only of the more common physical problems but also of the less obvious and just as disabling cognitive and perceptual problems.

    Unilateral visual neglect remains one of the most striking consequences of right sided stroke and is characterized by the patients’ failure to respond or attend to objects or people situated on that part of space opposite the side of the stroke. When the neglect is severe, the patient may behave as if the left side of space has abruptly ceased to exist in any meaningful form.

    This program provides an overview of some of the clinical and experimental behaviors commonly associated with visual neglect. Using examples from both clinical neurology and cognitive neuropsychology, this program describes the striking and often complex nature of visual neglect. (25 minutes)

  • Art and Visuospatial Perception - The effect of Stroke on a Graphic Artist
  • The analysis of a graphic artist’s work after right hemisphere stroke provides a unique opportunity to document the ways in which visuo-spatial and visuoperceptual abilities can be impaired. Art and Visuospatial Perception is designed to assist in understanding visual neglect through art. English artist Tom Greenshields is featured in a comparison of his pre-stroke and post-stroke human figure sculptures and paintings. This 20-minute video traces his recovery through his art. It is a unique opportunity to see visual neglect from an artist's perspective. (20 minutes)
