Cognitive stimulation in a-MCI: an experimental study.

28 maggio 2013
By

Authors Moro V, Condoleo MT, Sala F, Pernigo S, Moretto G, Gambina G. Abstract Nowadays, preventing the effects of mental decline is an international priority, but there is little research into cognitive training in mild cognitive impairment (MCI). We present the results of a program aimed at teaching memory strategies and improving metacognitive abilities. This was associated with training to ameliorate caregivers’ assistance....

Massive somatic deafferentation and motor deefferentation of the lower part of the body impair its visual recognition: a psychophysical study of patients with spinal cord injury.

11 settembre 2012
By

Authors Pernigo S, Moro V, Avesani R, Miatello C, Urgesi C, Aglioti SM. Abstract Embodied cognition theories postulate that perceiving and understanding the body states of other individuals are underpinned by the neural structures activated during first-hand experience of the same states. This suggests that one’s own sensorimotor system may be used to identify the actions and sensations of...

By

Authors Moro V, Pernigo S, Avesani R, Bulgarelli C, Urgesi C, Candidi M, Aglioti SM. Abstract Conspicuous deficits in face recognition characterize prosopagnosia. Information on whether agnosic deficits may extend to non-facial body parts is lacking. Here we report the neuropsychological description of FM, a patient affected by a complete deficit in face recognition in the presence of mild clinical...

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

7 settembre 2012
By

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...

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

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 motorawareness may co-exist with explicit denial of impairment. Here we explore whether the attempt by AH patients to perform an action may disclose residual forms of motor awareness and whether...
