The aim of the current study was to investigate long-term effects in spatial awareness after daily exposure to prism adaptation during three months in a patient with hemispatial neglect. Results showed improvement in the detection of stimuli in the contralesional visual field, as measured with perimetry, in the contralesional visual field up to 24 months after ending prism adaptation. These perimetrical results suggest that compensatory eye movements are an unlikely candidate for an underlying mechanism.
