Recently a man came with his gray-haired mother into my examining room. "She keeps asking, ‘Whose arm is this?' But her arm works fine."
"He made me come," she groused lightly, beaming at his concern.
"Ah Mrs M., you've had a stroke," I opined, laying a finger above her ear, "right here."
But beyond that anatomy, I don't know that I'd ever thought about the biochemistry or connectionist neuroanatomy of hemispatial neglect, until I slogged through The Attentive Brain.
