Abstract

Left-hemisphere brain damage may result in limb apraxia, a deficit in the processing of gestures ([Rothi et al., 1991] and Cubelli et al., 2000 R. Cubelli, C. Marchetti, G. Boscolo and S. Della Sala, Cognition in action: Testing a model of limb apraxia, Brain and Cognition 44 (2000), pp. 144-165.
