  • [A Skilled Typist with Typing Disorder Following Resection of a Left Frontal Lobe Tumor]. [Case Reports]
    Brain Nerve 2019; 71(10):1097-1103Wakamatsu K, Ishiai S, Saito H
  • We reported a male who showed typing disorders after resection of a tumor in the left posterior superior and middle frontal gyri. He was a right-handed Japanese in his 50s and was good at touch typing as a system engineer. After the tumor resection, he presented typing errors and slightly impaired dexterity of his right fingers. The results of neuropsychological examinations indicated that his ty…
  • Alexia without Agraphia-report of Five Cases and Review of Literature. [Case Reports]
    J Assoc Physicians India 2019; 67(7):78-80S S, Mathew R, P B
  • Alexia without agraphia (also called pure alexia or word blindness) was the first of the disconnection syndromes to be described. It results from the loss of visual input to the language area without involvement of the language area. The most common cause is occlusion of the left posterior cerebral artery with involvement of left occipital cortex and the splenium of corpus callosum. However, it c…
  • GeneReviews®: Inclusion Body Myopathy with Paget Disease of Bone and/or Frontotemporal Dementia [BOOK]
    University of Washington, Seattle: Seattle (WA)Adam MP, Ardinger HH, … Amemiya AKimonis VBOOK
  • Inclusion body myopathy associated with Paget disease of bone (PDB) and/or frontotemporal dementia (IBMPFD) is characterized by adult-onset proximal and distal muscle weakness (clinically resembling a limb-girdle muscular dystrophy syndrome), early-onset PDB, and premature frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Muscle weakness progresses to involve other limb and respiratory muscles. PDB involves focal a…
  • Kanji (Morphogram) and Kana (Phonogram) Problem in Japanese Alexia and Agraphia. [Historical Article]
    Front Neurol Neurosci 2019; 44:53-63Sakurai Y
  • The kanji and kana (or kanji vs. kana) problem in the Japanese language denotes the dissociation between kanji (morphograms) and kana (phonograms) in reading/comprehension and writing. Since paragraphia of kana in a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis was first reported in 1893, kanji-kana dissociation has been the central topic in Japanese aphasiology. Recent advancements in lesion-to-sym…
  • 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 …
  • Alexia and Agraphia Intervention Following Traumatic Brain Injury: A Single Case Study. [Journal Article]
    Am J Speech Lang Pathol 2019; 28(3):1152-1166Hux K, Mahrt T
  • Purpose This case study documents the effectiveness of a multicomponent intervention for an adolescent with acquired alexia and agraphia following severe traumatic brain injury. Method Initial testing revealed severe central alexia and surface agraphia with concomitant anomic aphasia. Intervention components included sight word drills, modified Multiple Oral Reading (MOR) procedures, functional r…
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation of Acquired Calculation Disturbances. [Review]
    Behav Neurol 2019; 2019:3151092Ardila A, Rosselli M
  • Acalculia is an acquired disorder in calculation abilities, usually associated with left posterior parietal damage. Two types of acalculic disorders are usually distinguished: (1) primary acalculia or anarithmetia, where the patient presents a loss of numerical concepts (difficulties are observed both in oral and written calculations), and (2) secondary acalculia due to a different disturbance in…
  • The making of a syndrome: The English translation of Gerstmann's first report. [Journal Article]
    Cortex 2019; 117:277-283Rusconi E, Cubelli R
  • The label Gerstmann syndrome indicates the co-occurrence of four symptoms in persons with acquired brain lesions: finger agnosia, left-right disorientation, agraphia, and acalculia. The syndrome is often associated with a lesion affecting the posterior parietal lobe of the left cerebral hemisphere. Virtually every paper discussing this tetrad of symptoms refers back to Josef Gerstmann's (1924) fi…
  • Seeing is not believing. [Journal Article]
    Surv Ophthalmol 2019Foster Z, Kini A, … Vaphiades M
  • An 84-year-old woman with a history of dry age-related macular degeneration presented with an acute inability to read, but intact writing ability (pure alexia or alexia without agraphia). She denied any difficulty speaking, paresthesias, or hemiparesis. Her visual acuity was 20/20 in each eye. Macular examination, optical coherence tomography, and fluorescein angiography demonstrated the previous…
