Abstract

We describe a set of algorithms that enhance the sensitivity of cancellation tests used in assessing visuospatial neglect. The algorithms can be readily implemented on a computer and can provide temporal and nontemporal data on strategies used during cancellation. We also present preliminary results from a group of 68 right-hemisphere brain-damaged patients and 12 age-matched control participants, which demonstrate the clinical significance of the measures we have defined.
