  • Alien limb phenomenon following posterior cerebral artery stroke: a distinct clinical entity. [Journal Article]
    J Neurol 2020; 267(1):95-99Nowak DA, Engel A, … Zeller C
  • Alien limb syndrome following stroke within the territory of the posterior cerebral artery is exceedingly rare. A right-handed female experienced left homonymous hemianopia, visuospatial neglect, and proprioceptive loss of her left hemi-body. She experienced unintended, involuntary movements of her left arm and hand, which interfered with and disturbed motor actions of daily life performed with h…
  • Unraveling corticobasal syndrome and alien limb syndrome with structural brain imaging. [Journal Article]
    Cortex 2019; 117:33-40Albrecht F, Mueller K, … Schroeter ML
  • Alien limb phenomenon is a rare syndrome associated with a feeling of non-belonging and disowning toward one's limb. In contrast, anarchic limb phenomenon leads to involuntary but goal-directed movements. Alien/anarchic limb phenomena are frequent in corticobasal syndrome (CBS), an atypical parkinsonian syndrome characterized by rigidity, akinesia, dystonia, cortical sensory deficit, and apraxia.…
  • Rare histotype of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, clinically suspected as corticobasal degeneration. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(3)Tilley BS, Smith C, … Attems J
  • Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is a rare neurodegenerative disease that can mimic other neurological disorders. We present a case of sCJD in a 64-year-old man that presented with corticobasal syndrome and survived for 3 years. He presented initially with dementia, hemiparkinsonism and alien limb phenomenon and was diagnosed with corticobasal degeneration, ultimately progressing to immo…
  • Bringing order to higher order motor disorders. [Review]
    J Neurol 2019; 266(4):797-805Kojović M, Bhatia KP
  • Majority of movements in everyday situations are complex and involve volition, planning of the movement and selection of the motor programme, all occurring before movement execution. Higher order motor disorders may be defined as abnormal motor behaviours resulting from disruption of any of the cortical processes that precede execution of the motor act. They are common in patients with neurodegen…
