Answer

The type of deficit depends on the area of brain involved. If the dominant (usually the left) hemisphere is involved, a syndrome consisting of the following may result:

  • Right hemiparesis

  • Right hemisensory loss

  • Left gaze preference

  • Right visual field cut

  • Aphasia

  • Neglect (atypical)
