Choosing between alternative wrist postures: Action planning needs perception (2008)
Journal Article
Dijkerman, H. C., McIntosh, R. D., Schindler, I., Nijboer, T. C. W., & Milner, A. D. (2009). Choosing between alternative wrist postures: Action planning needs perception. Neuropsychologia, 47(6), (1476-1482). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2008.12.002. ISSN 0028-3932

When normal subjects grasp with their right hand a rectangular object placed at different orientations in the horizontal plane, they change from a 'thumb left' (clockwise) to a 'thumb right' (anti-clockwise) grasp when the orientation exceeds about 1...

The disengage deficit in hemispatial neglect is restricted to between-object shifts and is abolished by prism adaptation (2008)
Journal Article
Schindler, I., McIntosh, R. D., Cassidy, T. P., Birchall, D., Benson, V., Ietswaart, M., & Milner, A. D. (2009). The disengage deficit in hemispatial neglect is restricted to between-object shifts and is abolished by prism adaptation. Experimental Brain Research, 192(3), 499-510. doi:10.1007/s00221-008-1585-4

We sought to determine the effects of prism adaptation on peripherally cued visual attention shifting in patients with spatial neglect, using a task devised by Egly et al. (J Exp Psychol Gen 123:161-177, 1994) based on the classic Posner paradigm. Th...

Contralateral visual search deficits following TMS (2008)
Journal Article
Schindler, I., Ellison, A., & Milner, A. D. (2008). Contralateral visual search deficits following TMS. Journal of neuropsychology, 2(2), 501-508. doi:10.1348/174866407x227024

Transcranial magnetic stimulation of posterior parietal vs. superior temporal sites cause differential effects on conventional conjunction vs. feature search tasks, respectively. We now report that when a decision has to be made on the target's left/... Read More about Contralateral visual search deficits following TMS.

Delay abolishes the obstacle avoidance deficit in unilateral optic ataxia (2008)
Journal Article
Rice, N. J., Edwards, M. G., Schindler, I., Punt, T. D., McIntosh, R. D., Humphreys, G. W., …Milner, A. D. (2008). Delay abolishes the obstacle avoidance deficit in unilateral optic ataxia. Neuropsychologia, 46(5), (1549-1557). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2008.01.012. ISSN 0028-3932

Optic ataxic patients have deficits in the visual control of manual reaching and grasping. It has been established previously that these deficits in target-directed behaviour improve following a delay in response. Recently it has been demonstrated th...
