The present paper provides an analysis of the pointing errors of a patient with unilateral optic ataxia (O.K.) following right hemispheric damage, revealing the type of errors related to the use of the contralesional hand and/or to the reaching of targets located in the contralesional visual field. In addition, comparison between immediate and delayed pantomime pointing allow testing of whether pointing deficits of this patient are specific to real-time visuo-motor control and, subsequently, whether delay could improve his pointing performance. The results show different patterns in the four hand-field combinations. The following conclusion can be drawn from the results of the delayed condition. In the case of patient O. K., the delay reduced the pointing variability for both hands in the left visual field but not in the right visual field. However, the pointing biases did not improve accordingly. As in healthy subjects, target locations tended to be coded in memory with a bias directed toward the fixation point. These results are discussed and contrasted with respect to those previously obtained in the literature in patients with bilateral optic ataxia.
