Tactile agnosia and tactile apraxia: Cross talk between the action and perception streams in the anterior intraparietal area
Binkofski F., Reetz K., Blangero A.
In the haptic domain, a double dissociation can be proposed on the basis of neurological deficits between tactile information for action, represented by tactile apraxia, and tactile information for perception, represented by tactile agnosia. We suggest that this dissociation comes from different networks, both involving the anterior intraparietal area of the posterior parietal cortex. © 2007 Cambridge University Press.
