Balint syndrome: A case of simultanagnosia

A. Berti, C. Papagno, G. Vallar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a patient with a bilateral posterior lesion, who showed optic ataxia, gaze apraxia and the symptom which most authors call the inability to see more than one thing at a time. We discuss the last feature and the term simultanagnosia sometimes used to indicate it. Furthermore we stress the unusual localization of the lesion in this patient.
