Abstract

The Eastchester clapping sign is advocated as an early and sensitive sign of hemispatial egocentric neglect. Patients are asked to clap: those with neglect perform one-handed motions which stop at the midline. Hemiplegic patients without neglect reach across the midline and clap against their plegic hand.
