Abstract

This paper examines a computer-based technique for the detection of visuo-spatial neglect from the responses of a simple geometric shape copying task. Defining pass/fail criteria based on the presence of drawn components, responses can be accurately and objectively assessed. More importantly, we show that by analysing novel dynamic performance features detailing timing and constructional aspects of each response, significant performance deficits can be noted in drawings made by clinically diagnosed neglect subjects that would have been classified as 'normal' using conventional static analysis, thus improving the sensitivity of the assessment.
