Objectives Asomatognosia is broadly defined as unawareness of ownership of one's arm, while somatoparaphrenia is a subtype in which patients also display delusional misidentification and confabulation. Studies differ with regard to the underlying neuroanatomy of these syndromes. Methods Three groups of patients with right-hemisphere strokes and left hemiplegia were analysed: G1, asomatognosia+neglect; G2, non-asomatognosia+neglect; G3, hemiplegia only. The asomatognosic group was further… Expand
An anatomical account of somatoparaphrenia
TLDR
It is proposed that somatoparaphrenia occurs providing that a distributed cortical lesion pattern is present together with a subcortical lesion load that prevents most sensory input from being processed in neocortical structures; involvement of deep cortical and sub cortical grey structures of the temporal lobe may contribute to reduce the sense of familiarity experienced by somato-parietal patients for their paralyzed limb.

What is Mine? Behavioral and Anatomical Dissociations between Somatoparaphrenia and Anosognosia for Hemiplegia
TLDR
The behavioral dissociation between SP and anosognosia for hemiplegia, together with new anatomical evidence, suggests that motor awareness is not sufficient to build up a sense of ownership and therefore these two cognitive abilities are at least in part functionally independent and qualitatively different. Expand
“Crossed” somatoparaphrenia: an unusual new case and a review of the literature
TLDR
This case together with the seven other cases of “crossed somatoparaphrenia” with and without aphasia found since 1935 in the literature are presented and their relevance in relation to the above controversies are discussed. Expand
Chronic somatoparaphrenia: A follow-up study on two clinical cases
TLDR
The reported clinical observations suggest that somatoparaphrenia can be observed as a body-related chronic disorder and can outlast other cognitive defects, even if it arose in conjunction with them. Expand
Asomatognosia: Structured Interview and Assessment of Visuomotor Imagery
TLDR
The rigorous nosographic classification of asomatognosia is elaborated and a structured interview is introduced to capture both its core symptoms and associated signs of bodily estrangement to encourage the future use of the structured interview introduced here. Expand
Rehabilitation of somatoparaphrenia with misoplegia: insights from a single case-pilot study.
TLDR
The case of somatoparaphrenia with misoplegia, characterized by the absence of anosognosia for hemiplegia and personal neglect, following a surgical operation for left parietal meningioma is reported, showing the importance of a specific neuropsychological assessment in patients with parietal brain lesions and the usefulness of an integrated psychological and motor approach in rehabilitating patients with somato-phrenia.

Some Unusual Neuropsychological Syndromes : Somatoparaphrenia , Akinetopsia ,
Some unusual neuropsychological syndromes are rarely reported in the neuropsychological literature. This paper presents a review of four of these unusual clinical syndromes: (1) somatoparaphreniaExpand
A new clinical evaluation of asomatognosia in right brain damaged patients using visual and reaching tasks
TLDR
A novel task that has been developed in the present study could be used as an objective tool to measure this specific disorder of body ownership or to uncover subclinical conditions of asomatognosia. Expand

TLDR
Despite their rarity, it is fundamental to take them into consideration in order to understand how the brain organizes cognition; their understanding is also crucial in the clinical analysis of patients with brain pathologies. Expand
Transitory somatoparaphrenia associated with a left frontoparietal meningioma
TLDR
Somatoparaphrenia must be differentiated from asomatognosia, which is defined as a lack of awareness of affected parts of the body associated with agnosia, and patients generally complain that their limbs are missing or imperceptible to them. Expand

Anosognosia and asomatognosia during intracarotid amobarbital inactivation
TLDR
Dissociations of perception of location, weakness, and ownership of the affected limb are frequent, as well as misperceptions of location and body part identity, which suggest that multiple mechanisms are involved. Expand
Somatoparaphrenia: a body delusion. A review of the neuropsychological literature
TLDR
Somatoparaphrenia is often brought about by extensive right-sided lesions, but patients with posterior (parietal-temporal), and insular damage are on record, as well as a few patients with subcortical lesions. Expand
Verbal asomatognosia
TLDR
Converging lines of evidence from experiments in humans and monkeys suggest that damage to area PF may be necessary for the production of personal neglect of a limb. Expand
Neuropsychological and neuroanatomical correlates of confabulation.
TLDR
Nine confabulatory patients of comparable age, education, and general level of intelligence in the acute epoch of recovery after rupture and clipping of ACoA aneurysms are reported, suggesting that there is a common profile of deficits and anatomic foundation associated with confabulation. Expand
Illusory limb movements in anosognosia for hemiplegia.
TLDR
A strong relation exists between anosognosia for hemiplegia and confabulations concerning the movement of the plegic limb and there is also a strong relation between ILMs and asomatognOSia. Expand

TLDR
The study of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease using voxel-based morphometry and other imaging modalities may further the understanding of the neural structures that mediate the genesis of abnormal behaviours. Expand

TLDR
A comprehensive review of the ACoA literature concerning the neurobehavioral and neuroanatomical substrates of what has been termed the "ACoA syndrome" is presented. Expand
Delusional misidentifications and duplications
TLDR
A dual mechanism is postulated for the delusional misidentification syndromes: negative effects from right hemisphere and frontal lobe dysfunction as well as positive effects from release (i.e., overactivity) of preserved left hemisphere areas. Expand
PROBLEM OF IMPERCEPTION OF DISEASE AND OF IMPAIRED BODY TERRITORIES WITH ORGANIC LESIONS RELATION TO BODY SCHEME AND ITS DISORDERS
TLDR
The phenomenon of nonperception of disease has been observed in patients with cortical blindness from bilateral lesion of the occipital lobe and in persons with visual field defects from cerebral hemiplegia. Expand
The frontal lobes and content-specific delusions.
TLDR
The literature on several classes of content-specific delusions (misidentification, sexual, and somatic) is critically reviewed and demonstrates that when adequate diagnostic workups are conducted, a high proportion of such delusions are found to have a neurologic basis. Expand
