An apraxia characterized by the affected limb having involuntary, autonomous, and purposeful behaviors that are perceived as being controlled by an external force. Often the affected limb interferes with the actions of the normal limb. Symptoms develop from lesions in the CORPUS CALLOSUM or medial frontal cortex, stroke, infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME, corticobasal degeneration).
Abnormal involuntary movements which primarily affect the extremities, trunk, or jaw that occur as a manifestation of an underlying disease process. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent episodes of dyskinesia as a primary manifestation of disease may be referred to as dyskinesia syndromes (see MOVEMENT DISORDERS). Dyskinesias are also a relatively common manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.

A characteristic symptom complex.
Disorders of speech articulation caused by imperfect coordination of pharynx, larynx, tongue, or face muscles. This may result from CRANIAL NERVE DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; CEREBELLAR DISEASES; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES; BRAIN STEM diseases; or diseases of the corticobulbar tracts (see PYRAMIDAL TRACTS). The cortical language centers are intact in this condition. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p489)
Behavioral manifestations of cerebral dominance in which there is preferential use and superior functioning of either the left or the right side, as in the preferred use of the right hand or right foot.
A group of cognitive disorders characterized by the inability to perform previously learned skills that cannot be attributed to deficits of motor or sensory function. The two major subtypes of this condition are ideomotor (see APRAXIA, IDEOMOTOR) and ideational apraxia, which refers to loss of the ability to mentally formulate the processes involved with performing an action. For example, dressing apraxia may result from an inability to mentally formulate the act of placing clothes on the body. Apraxias are generally associated with lesions of the dominant PARIETAL LOBE and supramarginal gyrus. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp56-7)
Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.
Diseases of the BASAL GANGLIA including the PUTAMEN; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; claustrum; AMYGDALA; and CAUDATE NUCLEUS. DYSKINESIAS (most notably involuntary movements and alterations of the rate of movement) represent the primary clinical manifestations of these disorders. Common etiologies include CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES; and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.
Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
The formation of an area of NECROSIS in the CEREBRUM caused by an insufficiency of arterial or venous blood flow. Infarcts of the cerebrum are generally classified by hemisphere (i.e., left vs. right), lobe (e.g., frontal lobe infarction), arterial distribution (e.g., INFARCTION, ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), and etiology (e.g., embolic infarction).

Alien hand syndrome (AHS) is a condition in which a person experiences their limbs acting seemingly on their own, without control over the actions. The term is used for a variety of clinical conditions and most commonly affects the left hand. There are many similar names used to describe the various forms of the condition but they are often used inappropriately. The afflicted person may sometimes reach for objects and manipulate them without wanting to do so, even to the point of having to use the controllable hand to restrain the alien hand. While under normal circumstances, thought, as intent, and action can be assumed to be deeply mutually entangled, the occurrence of alien hand syndrome can be usefully conceptualized as a phenomenon reflecting a functional disentanglement between thought and action.[citation needed] Alien hand syndrome is best documented in cases where a person has had the two hemispheres of their brain surgically separated,[citation needed] a procedure sometimes used to ...
Ischemic lesions within the territory of the anterior cerebral artery present with a variety of clinical signs and symptoms. Among these, frontal alien hand syndrome is rare and easily overlooked in the acute clinical setting, but significantly impacts on functional activities of daily life. Given its rareness, very little is known about its long-term outcome. To shade some more light onto this issue, clinical presentation, course of rehabilitation and outcome of two illustrative cases of frontal alien hand syndrome following anterior cerebral artery stroke are presented. Within seven and nine months from symptom onset, respectively, the clinical symptoms of frontal alien hand had resolved completely in both cases. We conclude that frontal alien hand syndrome has a favourable long-term outcome.
Alien Hand Syndrome, also known as anarchic hand or Dr. Strangelove syndrome, is a disorder in which one hand appears to take on a mind of its own. Alien hand syndrome can be a side-effect of surgery to separate the two hemispheres of the brain to relieve the symptoms of extreme cases of epilepsy, and can also occur after other brain surgery, strokes, or infections.
When Karen Byrne woke up from a brain operation to control her epilepsy, she found that her left hand had a mind of his own.Heres the strange tale of the Alien Hand Syndrome: Imagine being attacked by one of your own hands, which repeatedly tries to slap and punch you. Or you go into a shop and when you try to turn right, one of your legs decides it wants to go left, leaving you walking round in circles.Last summer I met 55-year-old Karen Byrne in New Jersey, who suffers from Alien Hand Syndrome.Her le...

A person with alien hand syndrome can feel normal sensation in the hand and leg, but believes that the hand, while still being a part of their body, behaves in a manner that is totally distinct from the sufferers normal behavior. They lose the sense of agency associated with the purposeful movement of the limb while retaining a sense of ownership of the limb. They feel that they have no control over the movements of the alien hand, but that, instead, the hand has the capability of acting autonomouslyâ i.e., independent of their voluntary control. The hand effectively has a will of its own.. Alien behavior can be distinguished from reflexive behavior in that the former is flexibly purposive while the latter is obligatory. Sometimes the sufferer will not be aware of what the alien hand is doing until it is brought to his or her attention, or until the hand does something that draws their attention to its behavior. There is a clear distinction between the behaviors of the two hands in ...
We describe two rare cases of alien limb syndrome following right posterior cerebral artery (PCA) stroke. Both patients present with left hemianopia, visual neglect and proprioceptive loss in addition to their alien limb symptoms. Lesion subtraction from seven control PCA patients revealed that medial parietal-occipital and thalamic areas were selectively damaged in the alien limb patients. We propose that loss of the sense of motor intention and internal model of the current state of the arm, combined with deficient proprioceptive and visual feedback of the moving limb, are critical for genesis of posterior alien limb and discuss how affected regions normally function to ensure awareness of self-generated motor activity.
AHS is also anarchic hand. When a person suffers from epilepsy, Alzheimers, stroke, or any other brain surgeries which lead to the separation of both the hemispheres of the brain, theyre at risk for Alien Hand Syndrome or AHS. Due to the surgery, the communication between both hemispheres is damaged which leads to a lot of miscommunication due to which the signal for movement just reaches from one-half of the hemisphere to the hand, the rest of the body is unaware of this command. This leads to involuntary gasping, choking, shaking the hand. Usually, it is the left hand that is affected by this disorder as the majority of the people are right handed. AHS is prominent in the less dominant hand.. AHS presents itself in a way that the patient needs to hold or grab everything in their vicinity and this is out of their control. The bilateral frontal lobe is damaged which leads to the body responding to external stimuli rather than internal ones. For example, seeing a toothbrush or a mug would be ...
There have been around 50 recorded cases of alien hand syndrome, which is also called anarchic hand. Those afflicted with the rare condition report that their hand performs various actions involuntarily. These actions range from the benign, such as buttoning up a shirt, to the violent, such as choking the bodys own neck. The hand seems to operate due to activity originating in the brains motor strip, which typically needs input from the frontal lobe before instructing the body to move.
Viewing objects can result in automatic, partial activation of motor plans associated with them-object affordance. Here, we recorded grip force simultaneously from both hands in an object affordance task to investigate the effects of conflict between coactivated responses. Participants classified pictures of objects by squeezing force transducers with their left or right hand. Responses were faster on trials where the object afforded an action with the same hand that was required to make the response (congruent trials) compared to the opposite hand (incongruent trials). In addition, conflict between coactivated responses was reduced if it was experienced on the preceding trial, just like Gratton adaptation effects reported in conflict tasks (e.g., Eriksen flanker). This finding suggests that object affordance demonstrates conflict effects similar to those shown in other stimulus-response mapping tasks and thus could be integrated into the wider conceptual framework on overlearnt stimulus-response
Alien limb sign includes failure to recognise ownership of ones limb when visual cues are removed, a feeling that one body part is foreign, personification of the affected body part, and autonomous activity which is perceived as outside voluntary control. Although the hand is most frequently affected, any limb or combination of limbs may fulfil the alien limb criteria. Alien hand sign should be reserved for cases in which the hand feels foreign together with observable involuntary motor activity. To characterise this phenomenon, seven patients with alien hand sign and other motor or behavioural manifestations are described. Aetiologies included multiple infarcts and cortobasal ganglionic degeneration (CBD). In this study, all patients had apraxia in response to verbal commands and problems with bimanual coordination. Most displayed non-goal directed involuntary motor activities, and two had self destructive motor behaviours. Grasp reflex occurred with alien hand due to either aetiology. ...
Studies show that 48% of Americans believe UFOs have been on Earth in some way (Speigel 18). This same poll was conducted in the 1950s and it shows that under 5 percent of the people in the United States believed that aliens exist. This makes sense considering the fact that when a person turns on the television or checks the newspaper, theres always an article showing that there are in fact, aliens. With all the new media excitement, the increase of movie production, and the thousands spent on new products every year, its not that hard to see how so many people today have been tricked into thinking that Aliens exist. A rancher named Mac Brazel was on his way to check on his sheep after a brutal rain and lightning storm. As he walking out to the sheep, he found a large amount of unusual junk. As he was looking closer, he noticed that there was a huge engraved path a couple feet in length with odd and strange debris all over the site. They found gray rubber spread everywhere as if something ...
Tropical diabetic hand syndrome describes a complex hand sepsis affecting patients with diabetes across the tropics and often results from a trivial hand trauma. The clinical presentation of this syndrome is variable and ranges from localised swelling and cellulitis, with or without ulceration of the hand to progressive fulminant hand sepsis, and gangrene affecting the entire limb which may be fatal. Tropical diabetic hand syndrome could lead to permanent disability and death as a result of delay in presentation, late diagnosis and late medical and surgical intervention. This indexed case acts as an eye opener for physicians to the existence of this hand sepsis. We report the case of a 57 year-old black African female diabetic who was referred to our centre for the management of a suppurating ulcer and swelling of the left hand of two weeks duration. On examination and work-up, the patient was found to have Lawal Group III left diabetic hand syndrome and was managed with parenteral antibiotics, radical
Alien Hand Syndrome (AHS) is a rare, neurological condition characterised by involuntary movements, typically of the non-dominant hand, which causes the patient to personify or experience estrangement from it. This syndrome differs from other conditions of involuntary limb movement as the affected limb is often goal-oriented. Patients have also been known to exhibit unusual behaviour, such as talking to the affected limb, and referring to it in third person (Goldberg, 2000). This presently accepted definition has been considerably broadened, having first been properly introduced in 1972 by Brion and Jedynak as a dispossession of the patients hand and the failure of inter-hemispheric communication in patients with corpus callosum tumours. The first case of AHS was reported by Goldstein (1908), that a 57 year old woman had a left hand which had a will of its own and would behave in its own fashion, at one stage grabbing the womans throat and suffocating her. A post-mortem examination revealed ...
Posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) is certainly a neurodegenerative symptoms seen as a impaired higher visible processing skills; nevertheless motor unit features even more connected with corticobasal syndrome could also occur frequently. rigidity. Limb apraxia was more asymmetrical and regular in PCA-motor seeing that was myoclonus. Tremor and alien limb phenomena just occurred within this subgroup. The subgroups didnt differ in neuropsychological check efficiency or apolipoprotein E4 allele regularity. Greater asymmetry of atrophy occurred in PCA-motor involving best frontoparietal and peri-rolandic cortices putamen and thalamus Otamixaban particularly. The 9 sufferers (including 4 PCA-motor) with pathology or cerebrospinal liquid all showed proof Alzheimers disease. Our data claim that PCA sufferers with electric motor features possess better atrophy of contralateral sensorimotor areas but remain likely to possess root Alzheimers disease. < 0.05.

Also known as Dr. Strangelove syndrome and anarchic hand, AIS is a neurological disorder that makes the victim feel like he has lost control of one of his hands. In extreme cases, sufferers have been reported to engage in violent wrestling with their own hand, with the appendages even trying to strangle the patient while sleeping. Alien hand syndrome is caused by trauma to the brain -- such as a stroke, aneurysm or head injury -- and the symptoms can be treated, although the condition itself has no cure ...
This directed case study tells the story of a middle-aged man with hypertension and hyperlipidemia who experiences an ischemic cerebrovascular accident. The case provides an opportunity for students to integrate the brains functional anatomy related to control of speech and body movement, and to examine how disruption of the brains blood supply can have systemic effects. Students learn the anatomy of the brains blood supply and explore the neural integration of upper motor neurons in the quadriceps reflex. Group discussion is used to teach the post-stroke symptoms of hemiparesis (primarily in the lower extremity), dysphasia, and alien hand syndrome. The case was originally developed for upper-level undergraduate biology majors following their coursework in anatomy, physiology, and neuroscience. The case is also appropriate for any upper-level college undergraduate or graduate course that covers the cardiovascular system, structure and function of the brains cerebrum, and the brains blood ...

But this is the thing: there comes a time in the life of a woman where, even in the privacy of her own workroom, there is a certain level of consternation involved in wearing blue gloves that turn human hands into Alien Hands.. Still, Ive discovered that these non-latex, non-powdered, nitrile gloves can be rather (ahem…) handy. Every other stitch, I was stopping to release silk from the sides of my fingers. Cant you imagine the frustration? Desperate times call for desperate measures. I donned a blue glove onto my stitching hand, and voilá! The problem was solved.. It takes a bit of getting used to, stitching with these things on. And I suppose that there are other solutions - for example, these finger gloves. But I dont have those anymore. A friend (thanks, Louise!) dropped off a bunch of these gloves, thinking they might help with dish-doing, and I thought, Why not try stitching with them?. These are the medium sized gloves and theyre a bit big, but they still work. Im not sure if ...

This article describes a representation-based framework of distributed cognition. This framework considers distributed cognition as a cognitive system whose structures and processes are distributed between internal and external representations, across a group of individuals, and across space and time. The major issue for distributed research, under this framework, are the distribution, transformation, and propagation of information across the components of the distributed cognitive system and how they affect the performance of the system as a whole. To demonstrate the value of this representation-based approach, the framework was used to describe and explain an important, challenging, and controversial issue - the concept of affordance.
Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) has emerged as an interaction paradigm for HCI. It has been used to confer object affordance, provide walking directions, and assist with sketching. However, the electrical signals used for EMS are multi-dimensional and require expert calibration before use. To date, this calibration has occurred as a collaboration between the experimenter, or interaction designer, and the user/participant. However, this is time-consuming, results in sampling only a limited space of possible signal configurations, and removes control from the participant. We present a calibration and signal exploration technique that both enables the user to control their own stimulation and thus comfort, and supports exploration of the continuous space of stimulation signals ...
A 59-year-old man with a history of intravenous drug use (DU) presented with a 3-day history of right-hand swelling, redness, warmth and pain. Physical examination was notable for a tensely oedematous hand with non-pitting oedema, warmth, blanching erythema and decreased range of motion (figure 1). He was empirically started on intravenous vancomycin for presumed skin and soft-tissue infection (SSTI). The patient was afebrile and studies including C reactive protein, leucocyte count and blood cultures were normal. An ultrasound study did not reveal any deep vein thrombosis. X-rays showed no fracture, foreign bodies or gas formation. There was no improvement after 48 hours of antibiotic therapy. MRI of the hand showed diffuse myositis of the intrinsic hand muscles and surrounding skin oedema (figures 2 and 3). Initially, he denied intravenous drug use into his arms, however, on further questioning, the patient admitted to injecting methamphetamine. Although he denied recent use, urine toxicology ...

Introduction. Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 In the New Nation under the new Constitution, the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 were adopted by the Federalists. The Alien Law prevented immigrants from becoming a citizen until they had lived in the United States for 14 years. Two other such laws were passed later, authorizing the president to deport any aliens considered dangerous and to detain any enemy aliens in time of war. The Sedition Act made it illegal for newspapers editors to criticize either the president or Congress and imposed heavy penalties for editors who violated the law. The debate over the Alien and Sedition Acts revealed bitter controversies on a number of issues, most notably the issue of nullification, and the hostile reaction toward foreigners, especially the French. One of the bitterest controversies that arose due to the debate over the Alien and Sedition Acts was the nullification issue, which included disputes between the states rights supporters and the strong central ...

When they emerge on the other side of the tunnel, they find that they have been ambushed; the shaft leading upwards from the mess hall has been festooned with alien eggs, which eject facehuggers at the humans. Ripley gets one on her face, but her inhuman strength allows her to rip it away from herself (a strange twist on the similar incident that happened to her in Aliens). Grenades clear the shaft of eggs and allows the crew to climb the ladder to the top, but aliens emerge from the water below them and attack. When Call and Wren reach the top of the shaft first, Wren talks her into giving him her gun and shoots her in the chest; her body falls back down into the water and drifts away. Ripley is horrified, as she has found something strangely compelling about Call. Christie is wounded and grabbed by an alien, and then sacrifices his life to give Vriess a chance to get away. Wren has escaped the shaft and sealed everyone else inside, but the door eventually opens again from the other side; Call ...
There has been an ongoing conversation about the role and relationship of theory and practice in the HCI community. This paper explores this relationship privileging a practice perspective through a tentative model, which describes a bubble-up of ideas from practice to inform research and theory development, and an accompanying trickle-down of theory into practice. Interviews were conducted with interaction designers, which included a description of their use of design methods in practice, and their knowledge and use of two common design methods-affinity diagramming and the concept of affordance. Based on these interviews, potential relationships between theory and practice are explored through this model. Disseminating agents already common in HCI practice are addressed as possible mechanisms for the research community to understand practice more completely. pportunities for future research, based. on the use of the tentative model in a generative way, are. considered.. ...
Run Time: 1 hour 45 minutes Green Lantern is about an test pilot named Hal (played by Reynolds) who stumbles upon a dying alien who bequeaths him with super powers in the form of a green ring and a green lantern. When an autopsy performed on the dead alien infects Dr. Hector Hammond (played by Sarsgaard) with the evil yellow fear blood of Parallax, the evil force that killed the alien, the alien battle comes to Earth. Now Hal must learn how to use his new super powers to save Carol (played by Lively) by battling Hector - and ultimately Parallax - to save Earth.

In his book Forbidden Science, Jacques Vallee discusses the well-known Affa case of 1954: A contactee, Mrs Frances Swan, told how she was in telepathic communication (via automatic writing) from the commanders of two alien spaceships (Affa and Ponnar).
