Neglect refers to the disorder of obvious inattention or perceptual response to objects in one's own body or field of vision, which is called neglect. In both cases, there is a tilt in attention and orientation, which involves different types of sensory, motor and memory patterns, causing a series of clinical manifestations. Neglect is caused by lesions in the right parietal lobe. Motor neglect can also be seen in the inner or dorsolateral side of the frontal lobe, cortical or subcortical lesions in the temporal region, and lesions in the thalamus, caudate nucleus, putamen and internal capsule. Sensory neglect and lateral spatial neglect are often caused by lesions in the inferior parietal lobule or posterior thalamus of the non dominant hemisphere. They are also seen in the parietal lobe, inner and dorsolateral sides of the frontal lobe, basal nucleus and posterior limbs of the internal capsule of the dominant hemisphere.
