Unilateral spatial neglect (USN) is a frequent and often underestimated cognitive disorder which impairs the recovery of patients with acquired brain lesions.
In recent years, efforts have been directed towards developing new assessment tools and effective treatments, however, shared approaches for the assessment of USN and tailored treatments are still presently lacking.
The aim of this Special Issue is to give an overview of the recent advancements in the treatment of USN and the evaluation of rehabilitation efficacy. We are also interested in studies regarding the effectiveness of traditional or novel treatments on functionality and long-term outcomes, in particular, studies aimed at facilitating the recovery of daily life functioning, or assessing and/or treating selective aspects of USN syndrome.
