Ideomotor apraxia is defined as a disturbance in timing, sequencing, and spatial organization of gestural movements. Left hemisphere motor dominance reflected by ideomotor apraxia mainly refers to spatially and temporally complex movements performed outside the natural context. While clinicoanatomical studies have failed to unveil a specific lesion correlating with apraxia, white matter damage-interrupting corticocortical and corticosubcortical connections-seems crucial for the deficit to be… CONTINUE READING
