Visuospatial judgment. A clinical test

Arch Neurol. 1978 Jun;35(6):364-7. doi: 10.1001/archneur.1978.00500300038006.


We constructed and developed a brief test assessing capacity for discriminating the direction of lines. Application of the test to patients with unilateral brain disease disclosed a remarkably high frequency of defective performance in those with right hemisphere lesions. The performance of patients with left hemisphere lesions was comparable to that of control patients. Brevity and ease of administration make the test convenient for clinical use.
