A complex clinical-neuropsychological study was performed by the Luriya method before and after surgery in 36 patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVM) of the corpus callosum. The symptoms of local lesions to the various parts of the corpus callosum are described. Symptoms of partial lesioning of the corpus callosum were found to be modality-specific, though only relatively. The symptoms of dyscopia or dysgraphia could appear in isolation fro each other. Combined lesions of the medial… 
eview ow does the corpus callosum mediate interhemispheric transfer ? A review
These theories of inhibition and excitation are further explored by reviewing recent behavioural studies and morphological findings to gain more information about callosal function.
Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and Emotional Information Processing in Schizophrenia
The results seem to give support to the disconnection hypothesis which posits that the core symptoms of schizophrenia are related to aberrant connectivity between distinct brain areas, especially when faced with emotional stimuli, a fact consistent with the clinical tableau of this particular patient.
Pediatric neurofunctional intervention in agenesis of the corpus callosum: a case report☆
Postural control and transfers of positions were benefited by the neurofunction intervention in this case of agenesis of the corpus callosum and the approach based on function with activities that involve muscle strengthening and balance reactions training influenced the acquisition of a more selective motor behavior.
New insights in the homotopic and heterotopic connectivity of the frontal portion of the human corpus callosum revealed by microdissection and diffusion tractography
A novel microdissection approach was adopted, to expose the frontal fibers of CC from the dorsum to the lateral cortex in eight hemispheres and in one entire brain, thus clarifying the functional role of the CC in mediating the inter‐hemispheric connectivity.
Brain Commissural Anomalies
This chapter presents new information about prevalence, the brain disorders associated with commissural anomalies, the etiology and the pathogenetic mechanisms that have been understood in recent years in this issue in the neurosciences.
Primary CNS lymphoma of the corpus callosum: presentation and neurocognitive outcomes
The corpus callosum (CC) is frequently involved in primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) and is associated with frequent cognitive dysfunctions, especially memory impairment, which may recover only partially despite CR and warrant specific rehabilitation.

Neuropsychological Features of Lesion-related Epilepsy in Adults: An Overview
An overview of the cognitive and behavioral presentations in adults with epilepsy secondary to focal pathology includes a discussion of focal malformations of cortical and vascular development and select foreign tissue and acquired lesions.


Dyspraxia following division of the cerebral commissures.
The BASIC picture of the cerebral deconnection or split-brain syndrome 1 has been extended and elaborated in recent years through the study of some patients in whom cerebral commissurotomy had been
Observations on visual perception after disconnexion of the cerebral hemispheres in man.
Tests were aimed at determining the extent and kinds of interaction, if any, between the perceptual and mnemonic activities of the separated hemispheres, at detecting differences in performance capacity of the right andLeft visual half systems and at revealing the degree of lateralization in motor responses to right and left visual field stimuli.
The theory has long been held that the disordered wave of nerve impulses resulting in an epileptic seizure with loss of consciousness usually begins at one focal point and then spreads widely to
Anterior and posterior callosal contributions to simultaneous bimanual movements of the hands and fingers.
It is demonstrated that neural communication across anterior and posterior fibres of the corpus callosum strongly influences the temporal precision of bimanual coordination and affects the degree of bilateral synchrony with which simple simultaneous hand and finger movements are initiated.
Hemispheric specialization: A possible clue to mechanism☆
Some functional effects of sectioning the cerebral commissures in man*
The general picture of callosal functions based on the animal studies tends to be supported in current early testing of a 48-year-old male war veteran with recent complete section of the corpus callosum, anterior and hippocampal commissures.
Left brain, right brain
This third edition of Left Brain, Right Brain features new or expanded material on the possible relationship between left-handedness and immune disorders, the role of the right hemisphere in language, hemispheric asymmetry and emotion, the implications of surgical separation of the hemispheres for brain research, and new evidence on how one hemisphere compensates for damage to the other.

Right hemisphere dominance for attention
Findings support the hypothesis that the right hemisphere is dominant for attention, as the left parietal lobe desynchronized most after right-sided stimuli and the right parietal lobes desynchronization equally after right or left stimuli.
