The Study of Anosognosia

George P. Prigatano

  • This book focuses on impaired self-awareness which, by its nature, is extremely interesting to many individuals. Perhaps the most dramatic example is when the individual has a right hemisphere stroke and is unaware of their hemiplegia. Understanding the brain mechanisms that allow the individual to eventually become aware of their neurological impairments is, of course, of major interest to scientists as well as clinicians and the lay public. This book attempts to provide our most recent understanding of this complicated phenomenon.
