Focal damage to the basal ganglia is relatively rare, and little is known about the cognitive effects of damage to specific basal ganglia structures. A 28-year-old, highly educated male (patient RI) sustained a unilateral left ischemic infarction involving primarily the putamen and secondarily the head of the caudate and the anterior internal capsule. Two detailed neuropsychological assessments, at 3 and 16 months post-infarction, revealed that a majority of cognitive abilities were spared. RI… CONTINUE READING
