Rehabilitation of visuomotor control: From basic processes to higher motor disorders

Upper limb function is highly reliant on visual input. This presentation will describe how deficits in primary and associative cortical areas processing visual information can result in symptoms such as visual field deficits and optic ataxia. The symptoms arising from these cortical lesions and the current evidence base for their management will be reviewed.
