Evoked potential in neglect

Arch Neurol. 1977 Apr;34(4):224-7. doi: 10.1001/archneur.1977.00500160038006.


The evoked potential was studied in Macaca speciosa before and after they received a lesion inducing neglect. Significant evoked potential changes associated with neglect were seen only in late components (N2, P3). These observations support the hypothesis of the arousal-attention mechanism of neglect.
