  • Alexia and Agraphia from 1861 to 1965. [Historical Article]
    Front Neurol Neurosci 2019; 44:39-52Henderson VW
  • Studies of alexia and agraphia have played historically important roles in efforts to understand the relation between brain and behavior. In the second half of the 19th century, works by Paul Broca and Carl Wernicke led to the concept of delimited cortical centers in the left cerebral hemisphere concerned with discrete aspects of spoken and written language. These specialized centers were linked …

Alcoholism is the most common etiologic factor associated with WE in the United States, but it can occur in any patient with a nutritional deficiency state such as hyperemesis gravidarum, intestinal obstruction, and malignancy. WE is a clinical diagnosis. The common findings include men…
  • Extreme Overvalued Belief and the Legacy of Carl Wernicke. [Journal Article]
    J Am Acad Psychiatry Law 2019; 47(2):180-187Rahman T, Meloy JR, Bauer R
  • Individuals with extreme overvalued beliefs often carry out abhorrent and inexplicable acts of violence. They hold odd and bizarre beliefs that are shared by others in their culture or subculture. This creates a dilemma for the forensic psychiatrist because the definition of delusion may not be adequate. We discuss the evolution of the term "overvalued idea" first described in a forensic context …

Traditionally, aphasia is categorized as either an expressive (Broca) or a receptive (Wernicke's) aphasia. Many patients have a component of both types of aphasia. This article describes Wernicke’s aphasia (also called receptive aphasia). This condition was first described by German physician Car…
