80% of cases of right-sided stroke show disturbances of conscious perception leading to neurological symptoms such as visual neglect. In 60% of them, this hemineglect will persist.

Previous studies demonstrated that good communication between the frontal and parietal lobes is essential for recovery from hemineglect. Unlike humans, animals such as non-human primates show rapid and spontaneous recovery from symptoms.

The aim of this project is to study cerebral communication and the recovery mechanisms in primates in order to identify treatable therapeutic targets that will improve patients’ daily lives.
