New paper! Zooming in on abnormal local and global processing biases after stroke: Frequency, lateralization, and associations with cognitive functions.

The ‘attentional spotlight’ can be adjusted depending on the task requirements, resulting in processing information at either the local or global level. We showed in a sample of 192 patients stroke can lead to local or global processing biases, or the inability to simultaneously attend both levels. Abnormal local and global biases related to a several cognitive functions. A specific bias might require a different approach in assessment, psycho-education, and treatment.
