Beaumont, and Van Linden and Meulemans, discuss the use of spatial tests within standard test batteries, and experimental paradigms, respectively, and the ways in which clinical data throw light on underlying spatial impairments and localisation of spatial function within the human brain. In Chapter 1, Beaumont describes tests of extrapersonal space perception, visual object and visual-spatial perception, drawing and copying, and construction tasks found in the standard test batteries. Beaumont concludes that, with the possible exception of visual-spatial neglect, relatively little work has been devoted to cognitive aspects of visual-spatial function and forsees a future expansion in the range of test materials that will become available for assessment purposes.
