Optic ataxia errors depend on remapped, not viewed, target location
Abstract: Optic ataxia is a disorder associated with posterior parietal lobe lesions, in which visually guided reaching errors typically occur for peripheral targets. It has been assumed that these errors are related to a faulty sensorimotor transformation of inputs from the 'ataxic visual field'. However, we show here that the errors observed in the contralesional field in optic ataxia depend on a dynamic gaze-centered internal representation of reach space.
