Alexia
Inability to read.
PE
Receives input from somatosensory cortex; sends outpust to primary motor cortex, supplementary motor and premotor areas, and area PF; guides movements by computing lim position; plays the role of a primary area
PF
Receives somatosensory input from PE, motor and premotor cortex, and vsual input through area PG; outputs are similar to PE; plays the role of a supplementary area (i.e. elaboration of informatoin in PE).
PG
Receives muliple inputs (visual, somesthetic, propioceptive, auditory, vestibular, ocularmotor (eye movements), motivational (emotional/limbic input); plays the role of association cortex (inter-modal mixing); part of dorsal stream; controls spatially guided behavior using tactile and visual informatoin.
Hippocampus
Primitive cortical structure lying in the anterior medial region of the temporal lobe.
Acalculia
Inability to perform mathematical operations
Afferent paresis
Loss of kinesthetic feedback that results from lesions to the postcentral gyrus (areas 1,2,3) and produces clumsy movements.
Simultaneous extinction
Second stage of recovery from contralateral neglect; characterized by response to stimuli on the neglected side as if there were a simultaneous stimulatin on the contraleral side.
Asomatognosia
Loss of knowledge of sensory awareness of one's own body and bodily condition; may be on one or both sides of the body; most commonly results from damage to the right parietal lobe.
Anosognosia
Loss of ability to recognize or to acknowledge an illness or bodily defect; usually associated with right parietal lesions.
Angular gyrus
Gyrys in the parietal lobe coresponding roughly to Brodmann's area 39; important in language functions.
Cingulate cortex
Strip of limbic cortex lying just above the corpus callosum along the medial walls of the cerebral hemispheres.
Orbital frontal cortex
Lies adjacent to the cavity containing the eye but, anatomically defined, receives projections from the dorsomedial nucleus of the thalamus.
