    The neural correlate of anterograde amnesia in Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS) is still debated. While the capacity to learn new information has been associated with integrity of the medial temporal lobe (MTL), previous studies indicated that the WKS is associated with diencephalic lesions,...

    Recent, convergent evidence places the anterior thalamic nuclei at the heart of diencephalic amnesia. However, the reasons for the severe memory loss in diencephalic amnesia remain unknown. A potential clue comes from the dense, reciprocal connections between the anterior thalamic nuclei and...

    We report a case of bilateral thalamic infarct associated with bilateral eyelid apraxia. This extremely rare condition provides us with an opportunity to map clinical and neuroimaging findings to help better understand brain function.

    Uncovering the functional relationship between temporal lobe amnesia and diencephalic amnesia depends on determining the role of the fornix, the major interlinking fiber tract. In this study relating fornix volume with memory, we made magnetic resonance imaging–based volume estimates of...

    Summary. Bilateral paramedian thalamic infarction is rare. The suggested mechanism is occlusion of a central unpaired thalamic perforating artery – an anatomic variant. In the few existing reports of this condition, the diagnosis was based on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance...

    [Purpose] We verified the effect of a cognitive approach for a patient with apraxia. [Subjects] The patient presented with apraxia in the right hand following an extensive brain infarct of the left cerebral hemisphere. [Methods] The approach consisted of cross-modal transfer tasks converting...

    Although aphasia and hemispatial neglect are classically labeled as cortical deficits, language deficits or hemispatial neglect following lesions to subcortical regions have been reported in many studies. However, whether or not aphasia and hemispatial neglect can be caused by subcortical...

    Tuberothalamic artery infarction (TTAI) results mainly in a myriad of neuropsychological symptoms such as memory impairment, euphoria, apathy, verbal perseverations, constructional apraxia and lack of spontaneity. Language disturbances, acalculia, buccofacial and limb apraxia occur prominently...

    Effects of thalamic nuclei damage and related white matter tracts on memory performance are still debated. This is particularly evident for the medio-dorsal thalamus which has been less clear in predicting amnesia than anterior thalamus changes. The current study addresses this issue by...

    Objective: To investigate the prevalence of apraxia in patients with a first left hemisphere stroke. Subjects: Left hemisphere stroke patients staying at an inpatient care unit of a rehabilitation centre or nursing home and receiving occupational therapy (n = 600). Measures: A short...
