I’m wearing a pair of adaptive prism goggles that are tricking my brain into thinking I’m reaching in the correct direction when in fact I’m slightly off-target to the right.
“When you initially put the goggles on and you try to reach the line, what you’ll see is you’ll miss the line by a few degrees,” said Gail Eskes, who was explaining her study of spatial neglect, a debilitating effect of stroke, in the Life Sciences Research building at Dalhousie University on Wednesday.
