    We describe the clinical manifestations and the lesion patterns of five patients with somatoparaphrenia, the denial of ownership for a paralyzed limb, who showed the rare dissociation from anosognosia for hemiplegia. Similar cases have been only occasionally cited in the literature with scanty...

    Anosognosia for hemiplegia is a common and striking disorder following stroke. Because it is typically transient and variable, it remains poorly understood and has rarely been investigated at different times in a systematic manner. Our study evaluated a prospective cohort of 58 patients with...

    THE TERM ANOSOGNOSIA WAS INTRODUCED BY BABINSKI TO Tdescribe unawareness of hemiplegia, a phenomenon that he thought was caused by sensory deafferentation. Anosognosia occurs in other conditions such as hemianopia, cortical blindness, hemineglect, prosopagnosia, amnesia, aphasia, and dementia....

    Selective neurological impairments can shed light on different aspects of motor cognition. Brain-damaged patients with anosognosia for hemiplegia deny their motor deficit and believe they can still move the paralysed limb. Here we study, for the first time, if the anomalous subjective experience...

    Following right-hemisphere damage, a specific disorder of motor awareness can occur called anosognosia for hemiplegia, i.e. the denial of motor deficits contralateral to a brain lesion. The study of anosognosia can offer unique insights into the neurocognitive basis of awareness. Typically,...

    Objective: To review the frequency, clinical correlates, and mechanism of anosognosia after stroke. Methods: We searched the most recent relevant literature on anosognosia after stroke and carried out a critical analysis of the main findings. Results: Anosognosia is present in about 10% of acute...

    The main aim of this study is to test the reliability and validity of the UMAS Questionnaire to evaluate anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP) and anosognosia for hemianaesthesia (AHA). Anosognosia is the unawareness or underestimation of a specific deficit in sensory, perceptual, motor, affective or...

    Objectives To confront motor awareness in anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP), where paralyzed patients deny their motor impairment, and in motor neglect (MN), where non-paralyzed patients behave as if they were paretic.
