Visual inattention and visual field loss
Kent Clinical Neuropsychology Service, Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust
Visual inattention is a common condition associated with stroke. Also known as ‘unilateral spatial neglect’, or more simply as ‘neglect’, it presents as a difficulty in detecting or acting upon information on one side of space. Although visual inattention is a particularly common consequence of stroke, it can also occur following other forms of acquired brain injury (such as traumatic brain injury).
