Disentangling Hemianopsia and Hemispatial Neglect: Seeing is Believing
The right side of the brain sees the left side of the world. How do various brain injuries (e.g., from trauma or stroke) affect one's vision and orientation to the world? We can begin to understand it all by first disentangling hemianopsia from so-called hemineglect- how are they the same and different. And from a neuropsych perspective, what can be done to distinguish these phenomena and how might they be treated? Dr. Layman will provide a practical overview of it all and review the subtle (and not so subtle) differences between the two. He will provide case examples that illustrates the presentations, interventions, and outcomes.
