Phenomenology and neural correlates of implicit and emergent motor awareness in patients with anosognosia for hemiplegia.

7 settembre 2012

Authors Moro V, Pernigo S, Zapparoli P, Cordioli Z, Aglioti SM. Abstract Anosognosia for hemiplegia (AH) is characterized by a lack of awareness of motor disorders and appears associated with fronto-temporal-parietal damage. Neuropsychological evidence indicates that behavioral indices of residual forms of motor awareness may co-exist with explicit denial of impairment. Here we explore whether the attempt by...
