Error-based training and emergent awareness in anosognosia for hemiplegia

26 agosto 2014
By

Abstract Residual forms of awareness have recently been demonstrated in subjects affected by anosognosia for hemiplegia, but their potential effects in recovery of awareness remain to date unexplored. Emergent awareness refers to a specific facet of motor unawareness in which anosognosic subjects recognise their motor deficits only...

By

Authors Besharati S, Kopelman M, Avesani R, Moro V, Fotopoulou AK. Abstract Anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP), or unawareness of motor deficits contralateral to a brain lesion, has lasting negative implications for the management and rehabilitation of patients. A recent, bedside psychophysical intervention, namely self-observation by video replay, lead to a lasting remission of severe...

Abstract Anosognosia is a multifaceted, neuro-psychiatric syndrome characterized by defective awareness of a variety of perceptuo-motor, cognitive or emotional deficits. The syndrome is also characterized by modularity, i.e. deficits of awareness in one domain (e.g. spatial perception) co-existing with spared functions in another...

Rubber hand illusion induced by touching the face ipsilaterally to a deprived hand: evidence for plastic ‘somatotopic’ remapping in tetraplegics

25 maggio 2014
By

Authors Michele Scandola, Emmanuele Tidoni, Renato Avesani, Giovanni Brunelli,Salvatore M. Aglioti and Valentina Moro Abstract Background: Studies in animals and humans indicate that the interruption of body-brain connections following spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to plastic cerebral reorganization. Objective: To explore whether inducing the Rubber Hand Illusion (RHI) via synchronous multisensory visuo-tactile bodily stimulation may reveal...

By

Authors Gambina G, Bonazzi A, Valbusa V, Condoleo M, Bortolami O, Broggio E, Sala F, Moretto G, Moro V. Abstract Awareness of cognitive deficits and clinical competence were investigated in 79 mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease patients. Awareness was assessed by the anosognosia questionnaire for dementia, and clinical competence by specific neuropsychological tests such as trail making test-A, Babcock story recall test,...

The interaction between implicit and explicit awareness in anosognosia: emergent awareness.

15 maggio 2014
By

Authors Moro V. Abstract The dissociation between implicit and explicit forms of awareness has been described in various neurological diseases. The way in which these forms of awareness integrate in order to permit the necessary unitary experience of self remains unclear. Here, the hypothesis that a form of emergent awareness (i.e., the emergence of...
