Neurologically healthy participants systematically misbisect horizontal lines to the left of centre, a phenomenon termed 'pseudoneglect'. According to the activation-orientation hypothesis, the distribution of attention is biased in the direction opposite to the more activated hemisphere. Since visuospatial tasks involve activation of the right hemisphere, the hypothesis suggests that a leftward line-bisection bias might be explained by the uneven distribution of attention to the left and right...[Show more]
