Effect of emotional context on bucco-facial apraxia
Borod, J.C. and Lorch, Marjorie and Koff, E. and Nicholas, M. (1987) Effect of emotional context on bucco-facial apraxia. Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology 9 (2), pp. 155-161. ISSN 0168-8634.
Patients with left- and right-hemisphere cerebrovascular pathology and normal adult controls were videotaped while executing tasks of bucco-facial praxis in emotional and nonemotional conditions. Each practic movement was assessed for accuracy and motor execution. Left-brain-damaged patients were significantly impaired on these tasks relative to right-damaged patients and controls. When emotional context was provided, apractic performance improved significantly.
