Helmholtz lecture Monika Harvey, January 13: Action and Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Training in patients with sub-acute and chronic spatial neglect
Helmholtz lecture Prof. Monika Harvey (School of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Glasgow, UK):
Title: Action and Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Training in patients with sub-acute and chronic spatial neglect.
Abstract: Up to 80% of people who experience a right-hemisphere stroke suffer from hemispatial neglect, a severe visuospatial impairment, where they fail to perceive/misperceive items presented in the contralesional part of space. This syndrome is debilitating, impedes rehabilitation, and is a strong independent predictor of poor recovery. In my talk I will present data showing that immediate on-line actions are relatively unimpaired in these neglect patients. Building on this insight, I will discuss two recent rehabilitation studies where we assessed whether these spared actions could be exploited for neglect rehabilitation a) via behavioural visuomotor feedback training or b) in a clinical trial using non-invasive brain stimulation.
