Abstract Memory for a spatial location’s representation is impaired in patients with left unilateral spatial neglect following a rightward gaze-shift, but not a leftward one. This is attributed to the loss of spatial representations normally transferred to the right hemisphere during spatial remapping, a process normally ensuring the updating and integration of successive retinal images in the parietal cortex. Because attentional and oculomotor processes may share partly similar brain circuits, we hypothesized that attentional displacements without overt eye movements might suffice to remap spatial locations' representations...
