Apraxias: 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)Apraxia, Ideomotor: A form of apraxia characterized by an acquired inability to carry out a complex motor activity despite the ability to mentally formulate the action. This condition has been attributed to a disruption of connections between the dominant parietal cortex and supplementary and premotor cortical regions in both hemispheres. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p57)Gait Apraxia: Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.Speech Disorders: Acquired or developmental conditions marked by an impaired ability to comprehend or generate spoken forms of language.Aphasia: A cognitive disorder marked by an impaired ability to comprehend or express language in its written or spoken form. This condition is caused by diseases which affect the language areas of the dominant hemisphere. Clinical features are used to classify the various subtypes of this condition. General categories include receptive, expressive, and mixed forms of aphasia.Ocular Motility Disorders: Disorders that feature impairment of eye movements as a primary manifestation of disease. These conditions may be divided into infranuclear, nuclear, and supranuclear disorders. Diseases of the eye muscles or oculomotor cranial nerves (III, IV, and VI) are considered infranuclear. Nuclear disorders are caused by disease of the oculomotor, trochlear, or abducens nuclei in the BRAIN STEM. Supranuclear disorders are produced by dysfunction of higher order sensory and motor systems that control eye movements, including neural networks in the CEREBRAL CORTEX; BASAL GANGLIA; CEREBELLUM; and BRAIN STEM. Ocular torticollis refers to a head tilt that is caused by an ocular misalignment. Opsoclonus refers to rapid, conjugate oscillations of the eyes in multiple directions, which may occur as a parainfectious or paraneoplastic condition (e.g., OPSOCLONUS-MYOCLONUS SYNDROME). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p240)Agraphia: Loss or impairment of the ability to write (letters, syllables, words, or phrases) due to an injury to a specific cerebral area or occasionally due to emotional factors. This condition rarely occurs in isolation, and often accompanies APHASIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p485; APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)Gestures: Movement of a part of the body for the purpose of communication.Thalamic Diseases: Disorders of the centrally located thalamus, which integrates a wide range of cortical and subcortical information. Manifestations include sensory loss, MOVEMENT DISORDERS; ATAXIA, pain syndromes, visual disorders, a variety of neuropsychological conditions, and COMA. Relatively common etiologies include CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; BRAIN HYPOXIA; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; and infectious processes.Ataxia: Impairment of the ability to perform smoothly coordinated voluntary movements. This condition may affect the limbs, trunk, eyes, pharynx, larynx, and other structures. Ataxia may result from impaired sensory or motor function. Sensory ataxia may result from posterior column injury or PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES. Motor ataxia may be associated with CEREBELLAR DISEASES; CEREBRAL CORTEX diseases; THALAMIC DISEASES; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES; injury to the RED NUCLEUS; and other conditions.Hypoalbuminemia: A condition in which albumin level in blood (SERUM ALBUMIN) is below the normal range. Hypoalbuminemia may be due to decreased hepatic albumin synthesis, increased albumin catabolism, altered albumin distribution, or albumin loss through the urine (ALBUMINURIA).Basal Ganglia Diseases: 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.Articulation Disorders: Disorders of the quality of speech characterized by the substitution, omission, distortion, and addition of phonemes.Stereognosis: Perception of shape and form of objects by TOUCH, via tactile stimuli.Gait Ataxia: Impairment of the ability to coordinate the movements required for normal ambulation (WALKING) which may result from impairments of motor function or sensory feedback. This condition may be associated with BRAIN DISEASES (including CEREBELLAR DISEASES and BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES); SPINAL CORD DISEASES; or PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES.Cerebellar Ataxia: Incoordination of voluntary movements that occur as a manifestation of CEREBELLAR DISEASES. Characteristic features include a tendency for limb movements to overshoot or undershoot a target (dysmetria), a tremor that occurs during attempted movements (intention TREMOR), impaired force and rhythm of diadochokinesis (rapidly alternating movements), and GAIT ATAXIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p90)Speech Production Measurement: Measurement of parameters of the speech product such as vocal tone, loudness, pitch, voice quality, articulation, resonance, phonation, phonetic structure and prosody.Speech Therapy: Treatment for individuals with speech defects and disorders that involves counseling and use of various exercises and aids to help the development of new speech habits.Olivopontocerebellar Atrophies: A group of inherited and sporadic disorders which share progressive ataxia in combination with atrophy of the CEREBELLUM; PONS; and inferior olivary nuclei. Additional clinical features may include MUSCLE RIGIDITY; NYSTAGMUS, PATHOLOGIC; RETINAL DEGENERATION; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; DEMENTIA; URINARY INCONTINENCE; and OPHTHALMOPLEGIA. The familial form has an earlier onset (second decade) and may feature spinal cord atrophy. The sporadic form tends to present in the fifth or sixth decade, and is considered a clinical subtype of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1085)Neuropsychological Tests: Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.Higher Nervous Activity: A term used in Eastern European research literature on brain and behavior physiology for cortical functions. It refers to the highest level of integrative function of the brain, centered in the CEREBRAL CORTEX, regulating language, thought, and behavior via sensory, motor, and cognitive processes.Agnosia: Loss of the ability to comprehend the meaning or recognize the importance of various forms of stimulation that cannot be attributed to impairment of a primary sensory modality. Tactile agnosia is characterized by an inability to perceive the shape and nature of an object by touch alone, despite unimpaired sensation to light touch, position, and other primary sensory modalities.Neuropsychology: A branch of psychology which investigates the correlation between experience or behavior and the basic neurophysiological processes. The term neuropsychology stresses the dominant role of the nervous system.

Limb apraxias: higher-order disorders of sensorimotor integration. (1/32)

Limb apraxia comprises a wide spectrum of higher-order motor disorders that result from acquired brain disease affecting the performance of skilled, learned movements. At present, limb apraxia is primarily classified by the nature of the errors made by the patient and the pathways through which these errors are elicited, based on a two-system model for the organization of action: a conceptual system and a production system. Dysfunction of the former would cause ideational (or conceptual) apraxia, whereas impairment of the latter would induce ideomotor and limb-kinetic apraxia. Currently, it is possible to approach several types of limb apraxia within the framework of our knowledge of the modular organization of the brain. Multiple parallel parietofrontal circuits, devoted to specific sensorimotor transformations, have been described in monkeys: visual and somatosensory transformations for reaching; transformation of information about the location of body parts necessary for the control of movements; somatosensory transformation for posture; visual transformation for grasping; and internal representation of actions. Evidence from anatomical and functional brain imaging studies suggests that the organization of the cortical motor system in humans is based on the same principles. Imitation of postures and movements also seems to be subserved by dedicated neural systems, according to the content of the gesture (meaningful versus meaningless) to be imitated. Damage to these systems would produce different types of ideomotor and limb-kinetic praxic deficits depending on the context in which the movement is performed and the cognitive demands of the action. On the other hand, ideational (or conceptual) apraxia would reflect an inability to select and use objects due to the disruption of normal integration between systems subserving the functional knowledge of actions and those involved in object knowledge.  (+info)

Neural representations of skilled movement. (2/32)

The frontal and parietal cortex are intimately involved in the representation of goal-directed movements, but the crucial neuroanatomical sites are not well established in humans. In order to identify these sites more precisely, we studied stroke patients who had the classic syndrome of ideomotor limb apraxia, which disrupts goal-directed movements, such as writing or brushing teeth. Patients with and without limb apraxia were identified by assessing errors imitating gestures and specifying a cut-off for apraxia relative to a normal control group. We then used MRI or CT for lesion localization and compared areas of overlap in those patients with and without limb apraxia. Patients with ideomotor limb apraxia had damage lateralized to a left hemispheric network involving the middle frontal gyrus and intraparietal sulcus region. Thus, the results revealed that discrete areas in the left hemisphere of humans are critical for control of complex goal-directed movements.  (+info)

Multimodal EEG analysis in man suggests impairment-specific changes in movement-related electric brain activity after stroke. (3/32)

Movement-related slow cortical potentials and event-related desynchronization of alpha (alpha-ERD) and beta (beta-ERD) activity after self-paced voluntary triangular finger movements were studied in 13 ischaemic supratentorial stroke patients and 10 age-matched control subjects during movement preparation and actual performance. The stroke patients suffered from central arm paresis (n = 8), somatosensory deficits (n = 3) or ideomotor apraxia (n = 2). The multimodal EEG analysis suggested impairment-specific changes in the movement-related electrical activity of the brain. The readiness potential of paretic subjects was centred more anteriorly and laterally; during movement, they showed increased beta-ERD at left lateral frontal recording sites. Patients with somatosensory deficits showed reduced alpha-ERD and beta-ERD during both movement preparation and actual performance. Patients with ideomotor apraxia showed more lateralized frontal movement-related slow cortical potentials during both movement preparation and performance, and reduced left parietal beta-ERD during movement preparation. We conclude that (i) disturbed motor efference is associated with an increased need for excitatory drive of pyramidal cells in motor and premotor areas or an attempt to drive movements through projections from these areas to brainstem motor systems during movement preparation; (ii) an undisturbed somatosensory afference might contribute to the release of relevant cortical areas from their 'idling' state when movements are prepared and performed; and (iii) apraxic patients have a relative lack of activity of the mesial frontal motor system and the left parietal cortex, which is believed to be part of a network subserving ideomotor praxis.  (+info)

Cortical and subcortical contributions to ideomotor apraxia: analysis of task demands and error types. (4/32)

Ideomotor apraxia (IMA) is often associated with damage of the dominant parietal cortex, but many other lesion sites have been implicated suggesting that the praxis system is mediated by a distributed modular network. Although IMA has been reported with subcortical lesions, the role of subcortical structures in the praxis neural network has not been fully addressed. To ascertain the role of subcortical structures in praxis, we compared praxis performance on a variety of tasks in patients with left hemisphere cortical and subcortical lesions. The cortical patients presented with deficits in the production of transitive and intransitive gestures-to-verbal command and imitation, as well as impaired gesture discrimination. In contrast, the subcortical group demonstrated mild production-execution deficits for transitive pantomimes, but normal imitation and discrimination. Qualitative error analysis of production deficits, revealed that both patient groups produced timing errors and the full range of spatial errors. Whereas the subcortical group made more postural errors than the cortical group, sequencing, unrecognizable and no-response errors were only produced by the cortical group. The different profiles of praxis deficits associated with cortical and subcortical lesions, suggests that these structures may have different roles in praxis.  (+info)

Ability to learn inhaler technique in relation to cognitive scores and tests of praxis in old age. (5/32)

Clinical observations have shown that some older patients are unable to learn to use a metered dose inhaler (MDI) despite having a normal abbreviated mental test (AMT) score, possibly because of dyspraxia or unrecognised cognitive impairment. Thirty inhaler-naive inpatients (age 76-94) with an AMT score of 8-10 (normal) were studied. Standard MDI training was given and the level of competence reached was scored (inhalation score). A separate observer performed the minimental test (MMT), Barthel index, geriatric depression score (GDS), ideational dyspraxia test (IDT), and ideomotor dyspraxia test (IMD). No correlative or threshold relationship was found between inhalation score and Barthel index, GDS, or IDT. However, a significant correlation was found between inhalation score and IMD (r = 0.45, p = 0.039) and MMT (r = 0.48, p = 0.032) and threshold effects emerged in that no subject with a MMT score of less than 23/30 had an inhalation score of 5/10 or more (adequate technique requires 6/10 or more), and all 17/18 with an inhalation score of 6/10 or more had an IMD of 14/20 or more. The three patients with a MMT >22 and inhalation score <6 had abnormal IMD scores. Inability to learn an adequate inhaler technique in subjects with a normal AMT score appears to be due to unrecognised cognitive impairment or dyspraxia. The MMT is probably a more useful screening test than the AMT score in this context.  (+info)

Pantomime to visual presentation of objects: left hand dyspraxia in patients with complete callosotomy. (6/32)

Investigations of left hand praxis in imitation and object use in patients with callosal disconnection have yielded divergent results, inducing a debate between two theoretical positions. Whereas Liepmann suggested that the left hemisphere is motor dominant, others maintain that both hemispheres have equal motor competences and propose that left hand apraxia in patients with callosal disconnection is secondary to left hemispheric specialization for language or other task modalities. The present study aims to gain further insight into the motor competence of the right hemisphere by investigating pantomime of object use in split-brain patients. Three patients with complete callosotomy and, as control groups, five patients with partial callosotomy and nine healthy subjects were examined for their ability to pantomime object use to visual object presentation and demonstrate object manipulation. In each condition, 11 objects were presented to the subjects who pantomimed or demonstrated the object use with either hand. In addition, six object pairs were presented to test bimanual coordination. Two independent raters evaluated the videotaped movement demonstrations. While object use demonstrations were perfect in all three groups, the split-brain patients displayed apraxic errors only with their left hands in the pantomime condition. The movement analysis of concept and execution errors included the examination of ipsilateral versus contralateral motor control. As the right hand/left hemisphere performances demonstrated retrieval of the correct movement concepts, concept errors by the left hand were taken as evidence for right hemisphere control. Several types of execution errors reflected a lack of distal motor control indicating the use of ipsilateral pathways. While one split-brain patient controlled his left hand predominantly by ipsilateral pathways in the pantomime condition, the error profile in the other two split-brain patients suggested that the right hemisphere controlled their left hands. In the object use condition, in all three split-brain patients fine-graded distal movements in the left hand indicated right hemispheric control. Our data show left hand apraxia in split-brain patients is not limited to verbal commands, but also occurs in pantomime to visual presentation of objects. As the demonstration with object in hand was unimpaired in either hand, both hemispheres must contain movement concepts for object use. However, the disconnected right hemisphere is impaired in retrieving the movement concept in response to visual object presentation, presumably because of a deficit in associating perceptual object representation with the movement concepts.  (+info)

A new classification of higher level gait disorders in patients with cerebral multi-infarct states. (7/32)

BACKGROUND: cerebral multi-infarct states may lead to gait disorders in the absence of cognitive impairment. Where these gait disorders occur in the absence of neurological signs they have been termed gait apraxia or more recently higher-level gait disorders. In this paper we hypothesise three main types based on presumptive sites of anatomical damage: (a) Ignition Apraxia, where damage is predominantly in the supplementary motor area and its connections, with good responses to external clues; (b) Equilibrium Apraxia, where damage is predominantly in the pre-motor area in its connections, with poor responses to external cues and (c) Mixed Gait Apraxia. SUBJECTS: the clinical features and measured gait parameters of 13 patients with cerebral multi-infarct states and higher-level gait disorder are described (7 with Ignition Apraxia and 6 with Equilibrium Apraxia) along with those of 6 healthy elderly control subjects. METHODS: baseline gait characteristics were assessed on a walkway, which measured the following: step lengths, width of base and velocity. RESULTS: measured baseline gait parameters support the above hypothesis. CONCLUSIONS: it is suggested, though not proven, that patients with Ignition Apraxia could have problems with internal cueing due to lesions in the supplementary motor area or its connections whereas those with Equilibrium Apraxia could have dysfunction predominantly in the pre-motor area and its connections.  (+info)

Evaluation of ideomotor apraxia in patients with stroke: a study of reliability and validity. (8/32)

OBJECTIVE: This aim of this study was to determine the reliability and validity of an established ideomotor apraxia test when applied to a Turkish stroke patient population and to healthy controls. SUBJECTS: The study group comprised 50 patients with right hemiplegia and 36 with left hemiplegia, who had developed the condition as a result of a cerebrovascular accident, and 33 age-matched healthy subjects. METHODS: The subjects were evaluated for apraxia using an established ideomotor apraxia test. The cut-off value of the test and the reliability coefficient between observers were determined. RESULTS: Apraxia was found in 54% patients with right hemiplegia (most being severe) and in 25% of left hemiplegic patients (most being mild). The apraxia scores for patients with right hemiplegia were found to be significantly lower than for those with left hemiplegia and for healthy subjects. There was no statistically significant difference between patients with left hemiplegia and healthy subjects. CONCLUSION: It was shown that the ideomotor apraxia test could distinguish apraxic from non-apraxic subjects. The reliability coefficient among observers in the study was high and a reliability study of the ideomotor apraxia test was therefore performed.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: The present study focuses on evaluating neural activation patterns underlying praxis movements in normal controls and in patients with ideomotor apraxia using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Ideomotor apraxia is a disorder affecting patients with stroke and a variety of other brain lesions. The disorder involves disturbed timing, sequence, and spatial organization of skilled movements, during the execution and probably also preparatory phases. As a consequence, patients suffer from incorrect temporal and spatial components to movements as evidenced during pantomime of transitive (object/tool related) and intransitive (independent of object/tool use) gestures. Thus far, damage to posterior parietal regions and parietofrontal circuits has been implicated in significantly contributing to this disorder. However, little is known about the mechanism of cortical reorganization following damage, notably during recovery process. We hypothesize that recruitment of ...

At this point, the options for moving forward are very open. The above guidelines give some very broad guidelines that can easily be manipulated to adapt to any individual. These approaches can easily be combined within a session as well. For instance, with a compound multi-joint exercise may start the session and the RPE driven approach is used. This may be followed up with a few accessory exercises done with either a load or zone-driven approach to target specific identified weaknesses. This also allows HEP intensities to be prescribed. Once the patient understands the concept it is easy to assign a range and a RPE goal. Unlike a number of other programs I have used Medbridges HEP program actually allows you to type in a range for the reps, which makes this very simple.. The main concept here is that there is a need for an approach that can integrate feedback into the daily programming. This ensures that appropriate intensity levels are reached while respecting the individuals ...
Storytelling is important in all cultures. Stories convey cultural values, beliefs and customs. The MESA culture uses the Secret to Success (a.k.a. African village story) to emphasize what it takes to succeed, especially in STEM majors! The message in the African village story is: when you find something in life that you want as much as you want to breathe, then you will find the secret to success. MESA Creators know that they must and can "breathe" to be successful - contributing to self-efficacy. Also, MESA Creators learn the MESA Capstone, which identifies the purpose for the learning. Academic degrees - Bachelors, Masters and Ph.Ds, are not the purpose for the learning: the purpose must be greater! The Capstone is similar to a star guiding MESA Creators on their journey in life. It identifies four qualities for MESA Creators to aspire to achieve: Skills, Knowledge, Wisdom and Freedom. Skills are important, but the purpose for the learning must be more than just skills. Knowledge must be ...

To successfully interact with the environment, goal-oriented movements made by human limbs must be guided by instructions from the brain. Loss of the ability to program purposeful skilled movements, in the absence of any motor, sensory, or cognitive deficit that could fully account for this disability, is called apraxia. Several types of apraxia were described by Hugo Liepmann in the beginning of the 20th century: ideomotor apraxia, where patients make spatial movement and postural errors as well as temporal errors, limb-kinetic apraxia, where patients are unable to perform precise independend and coordinated finger movements and ideational apraxia, where patients fail to correctly sequence a series of action. More recently, three other types of apraxia have been described: conceptual apraxia, where patients have a loss of mechanical knowledge; dissociation apraxia, where patients are impaired at performing a skilled act in response to stimuli in one modality but can perform normally when the ...
Treatment for individuals with apraxia includes speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy.[10] Yet, treatments for apraxia have received little attention for several reasons, including the tendency for the condition to resolve spontaneously in acute cases. Additionally, the very nature of the automatic-voluntary dissociation of motor abilities that defines apraxia means that patients may still be able to automatically perform activities if cued to do so in daily life. Nevertheless, research shows that patients experiencing apraxia have less functional independence in their daily lives,[11] and that evidence for the treatment of apraxia is scarce.[12] However, a literature review of apraxia treatment to date reveals that although the field is in its early stages of treatment design, certain aspects can be included to treat apraxia.[13] One method is through rehabilitative treatment, which has been found to positively impact apraxia, as well as activities of daily living.[13] In ...

After hearing about In Balance from a friend, she gave the program a try.. In short work, she was back on her feet. "At first, I couldnt even step onto the balance board without leaning on Missy (In Balance owner Missy Dwyer)," Cherry recalls. After just a few sessions she was walking with much more confidence and now says, "In Balance was the best thing Ive ever done in my life. I can be ME again!". When Clayton Jones was five years old, he had to deal with verbal apraxia, which involved difficulty with motor skills, causing him to speak only rarely and with difficulty. After one 12-week session of In Balance his mother, Patricia, was so pleased with his progress she signed him up for another 12 weeks. "There was a huge difference" in his motor skills, and he began to speak very well, his mother recalls.. Now he enjoys sports, he enjoys talking with family and friends and feels very comfortable communicating in general.. Nick Noel is another multi-timer, who worked on information retention ...

Objective To determine factors associated with work in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Methods Three hundred fifteen patients with AS were enrolled in a 24-week, randomized controlled study of adalimumab with a longterm, open-label, adalimumab extension phase. Patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures included the Medical Outcome Study Short Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36), AS Quality of Life Questionnaire (ASQOL), Health Utilities Index Mark 3 (HUI-3), and Work Productivity and Activity Impairment-Specific Health Problem Questionnaire (WPAI-SHP). Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyze differences between working and nonworking patients. The relationships between PRO and WPAI-SHP scores were assessed using Pearson correlation coefficients. Multivariate modeling was applied to determine factors associated with productivity while at work. WPAI-SHP was assessed through 3 years of adalimumab exposure. Results Younger age (p = 0.002) and male sex (p , 0.001) were significantly ...

The ADAS-Cog is a multi-item, objective measure of cognitive function. The scale evaluates memory, language, and praxis with items such as orientation, word recall, word recognition, object identification, comprehension, and the completion of simple tasks. Analysis of the ADAS-Cog for this study was based upon an 11 item score from the following items 1) word recall task, 2) naming objects and fingers, 3) following commands, 4) constructional praxis, 5) ideational praxis, 6) orientation, 7) word recognition, 8) remembering test instructions, 9) spoken language ability, 10) word finding difficulty in spontaneous speech, and 11) comprehension.This scale had to be administered by a trained and certified psychometric rater who did not have access to any information regarding adverse events experienced. The ADAS-Cog/11 ranged from 0 to 70 points, with higher scores indicating a greater degree of impairment. A negative change from baseline indicates a decrease in cognitive impairment ...

Eisosomes help sequester a subgroup of plasma membrane proteins into discrete membrane domains that colocalize with sites of endocytosis. Here we show that the major eisosome component Pil1 in vivo is a target of the long-chain base (LCB, the biosynthetic precursors to sphingolipids)-signaling pathway mediated by the Pkh-kinases. Eisosomes disassemble if Pil1 is hyperphosphorylated (i) upon overexpression of Pkh-kinases, (ii) upon reducing LCB concentrations by inhibiting serine-palmitoyl transferase in lcb1-mutant cells or by poisoning the enzyme with myriocin, and (iii) upon mimicking hyperphosphorylation in pil1-mutant cells. Conversely, more Pil1 assembles into eisosomes if Pil1 is hypophosphorylated (i) upon reducing Pkh-kinase activity in pkh1 pkh2-mutant cells, (ii) upon activating Pkh-kinases by addition of LCBs, and (iii) upon mimicking hypophosphorylation in pil1-mutant cells. The resulting enlarged eisosomes show altered organization. Other data suggest that Pkh signaling and ...
Those who hate Whites use various other definitions of racism to brow beat and cow Whites into submission. We shouldnt be intimidated. We shouldnt care what non-Whites, or self-hating Whites think about anything. They are not our kind. We Whites must separate as best we can from all non-Whites. If we are not able to physically separate, because of our jobs or other factors, we can still separate by avoiding non-Whites in our everyday lives as much as possible. No, we dont have to shout it from the rooftops or wear it on our sleeves. We should always treat all others, even non-Whites as we want to be treated, and we should respect all life and all humans and be polite but we should not mix and mingle when we can avoid it.

Ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 2 (AOA2) is one of the most frequent autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxias. Oculomotor apraxia refers to horizontal gaze failure due to deficits in voluntary/reactive eye movements. These deficits can manifest as increased latency and/or hypometria of saccades with a staircase pattern and are frequently associated with compensatory head thrust movements. Oculomotor disturbances associated with AOA2 have been poorly studied mainly because the diagnosis of oculomotor apraxia was based on the presence of compensatory head thrusts. The aim of this study was to characterise the nature of horizontal gaze failure in patients with AOA2 and to demonstrate oculomotor apraxia even in the absence of head thrusts. Five patients with AOA2, without head thrusts, were tested in saccadic tasks with the head restrained or free to move and their performance was compared to a group of six healthy participants. The most salient deficit of the patients was saccadic hypometria with a

Dyspraxia has been defined as "a breakdown of praxis [action]" and "the inability to utilise voluntary motor abilities effectively in all aspects of life from play to structured skilled tasks" (Chu S and Milloy NR cited in Bowens and Smith).1 An alternative, psychology‐based definition is "motor difficulties caused by perceptual problems, especially visual‐motor and kinaesthetic motor difficulties".2 Within the medical and scientific communities dyspraxia is generally considered to mean an impairment of, or difficulties with, the organisation, planning and execution of physical movement with a developmental rather than acquired origin. Most individuals with dyspraxia manifest a combination of both ideational or planning dyspraxia and ideomotor or executive dyspraxia; ideational or planning dyspraxia affects the planning and coordination, and ideomotor or executive dyspraxia affects the fluency and speed of motor activities ...

Apraxia may start as an occasional stumble across words but can progress to a complete loss of speech. Some patients with Apraxia may even become mute. Apraxia is related to degenerative neurologic disease and is frequently misdiagnosed as Alzheimers disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. "Because it first presents as just a speech problem, some people are told, This is in your head. Weve seen that. Its very sad," said Keith Josephs, MD. As patients and medical professionals cannot always recognize apraxia of speech, treatment is usually not received until the disease is in later stages. To read more, click here. ...

We found significant correlations between aphasia severity and degree of neurocognitive impairment as well as temporoparietal atrophy; but not disease duration. Cluster analysis identified three variants of lvPPA: (1) subjects with mild aphasia and short disease duration (mild typical lvPPA); (2) subjects with mild aphasia and long disease duration (mild atypical lvPPA); and, (3) subjects with severe aphasia and relatively long ...
Parents often ask if their child may have apraxia due to medical complications during pregnancy or childbirth. There are currently no studies that suggest a direct relationship between complications of pregnancy or childbirth and a specific increase in risk for apraxia of speech. For example, an umbilical cord wrapped around the neck of a fetus could theoretically cut off oxygen supply and possibly lead to neurological injury, eventually resulting in a CAS diagnosis. However, such a condition could also NOT result in CAS or even neurological injury. Some children are born just fine even though there was some complication during pregnancy or birth. So, while it is possible that a complication could result in neurological damage that might contribute toward a motor speech disorder like CAS, research has not told us when or how this would occur.. Some speculate that some forms of CAS and other childhood conditions may be a result, in part, of environmental conditions such as exposure to pollutants ...

Consistently, the imaging investigation showed involvement of GM and WM in the left posterior temporal and inferior parietal regions.. LPA is characterized by a decreased rate of spontaneous language production with frequent halts due to word-finding pauses. Phonemic paraphasias are common, but motor speech and grammar are spared. This pattern of language production is different from the fast output typical of early SemD patients, who usually fill word-finding pauses with circumlocutions and filler words. It is also distinct from the production deficit typical of PNFA, in which articulation deficits and agrammatism predominate.22 LPA patients, therefore, show a pattern of "intermediate" fluency distinct from the fluent SemDs and the nonfluent PNFAs, raising the ...

A Chicago-area company says its mix of vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids can help children with verbal apraxia, but the capsules have not been rigorously tested.
Praxis is the ability to organise a thought/action from the brain into a pre-planned movement. In order for someone to demonstrate the appropriate movement/command, the brain extracts and uses information from all of our memory and sensory processing areas ie. touch, auditory, smell, vision, taste plus vestibular balance/inner ear (proprioceptive/muscle receptors) to start and finish a given task… an example is right hand knowing what the left hand is doing. Taking this into useful terms, apraxia and dyspraxia expresses the lack of maturity in the areas required to fully plan some coordination of movement or speech…this does not mean that we cannot carry out all processes…indeed some with DCD/Apraxia are very good at sport but lack maturity in other areas ...

The molecular composition of plasma membranes is constantly remodeled by endocytosis and exocytosis. Eisosomes are large cytoplasmic protein assemblies that localize to specialized domains on the yeast plasma membrane. They are of uniform size and immobile, and their disruption leads to large aberrant plasma membrane invaginations and endocytic defects. It is unknown how eisosomes are formed or inherited and what governs their size, distribution, and location. Here we show that eisosomes are formed de novo in the bud of dividing cells. They colonize newly formed membrane at a fixed density in a polarized wave proceeding from the bud neck to the bud tip and become anchored at the site of their formation. Pil1, one of the two main eisosome subunits, emerges as the central regulator of eisosome biogenesis that determines both size and location of eisosomes. Lowering Pil1 expression leads to normal-sized eisosomes at a reduced density, suggesting that eisosomes must be of a minimal size. Conversely, ...

Im so glad you mentioned the abuse risk. Ive heard people say that you can help protect non-disabled kids from sexual abuse by making sure they have the right to sayno to any touch that isnt absolutely essential. They can refuse a hug from Grandma, for example. But so many people recommend the exact opposite when teaching disabled kids, and it seems to be taboo to suggest that forcing touch on them could put them at risk. Personally, I think this is especially true for kids on the autism spectrum, or with sensory processing issues. Some of these kids can find touch overloading or painful. What lesson are we teaching if we force an unpleasant or painful sensation on a child without a very clear need? Ive even heard of people grabbing an autistic childs face to force eye contact - a two-for-one boundary violation! Can you imagine doing that to a non-disabled child? And its actually worse to do it to an autistic child, because many autistic people find both touch and eye contact ...

This meta-analysis of 18 studies (10 randomized controlled trials) examined the relationship between pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) and both ED visits and hospitalizations. In overall analysis, PR graduates fared better than their non-PR counterparts. When the results were isolated by type of study, the results were less clear.
Different explanations and subtypes of conduction aphasia are analyzed. Characteristics of literal paraphasias in parietal-insular conduction aphasia are discussed, emphasizing that paraphasias in conduction aphasia are articulatory-based (articulatory literal paraphasias) and due mainly to phoneme substitutions and phoneme deletions; they result basically in switches in phoneme manner and place of articulation. Similarities between errors in ideomotor apraxia and conduction aphasia language deficits are presented. It is proposed that language deviations (in oral as in written language) in conduction aphasia can be understood as a segmentary apraxia of speech.

Y1 - 1996/1/1. N2 - The immunosuppressive agent FK-506 (tacrolimus) is one of the agents most commonly used to prevent rejection after liver transplantation. Neurologic toxicity related to FK-506 has been reported, including speech disorders; however, a detailed analysis of the speech disorder associated with use of FK-506 has not been presented. Herein we describe a patient who exhibited mutism, then severe apraxia of speech with a concomitant hypokinetic, spastic, and ataxic dysarthria after administration of FK-506. His re-sidual mixed dysarthria, without radiographie evidence of a structural lesion, suggests dysfunction of one or more neurochemical systems. The pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying this intriguing entity remain obscure.. AB - The immunosuppressive agent FK-506 (tacrolimus) is one ...
Primary progressive aphasia is a rare neurological syndrome that impairs language capabilities. People with primary progressive aphasia may have trouble naming objects or may misuse word endings, verb tenses, conjunctions and pronouns. People with primary progressive aphasia can become mute and may eventually lose the ability to understand written or spoken language. Primary progressive aphasia is a type of frontotemporal dementia, a cluster of related disorders that all originate in the frontal or temporal lobes of the brain.. Primary progressive aphasia specifically targets the language center of the brain - located in the brains left hemisphere. Brain scans typically show a marked shrinkage of the brains language center in people who have primary progressive aphasia. Brain activity also can be diminished.. Symptoms of primary progressive aphasia begin gradually, usually before the age of 65, and tend to worsen over time. Symptoms may vary by individual, depending on which portion of the ...
Children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) present with significant speech production deficits, the effects of which often persist well into late childhood (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2007; Lewis, Freebairn, Hansen, Iyengar, & Taylor, 2004). Debate has historically surrounded whether the features of CAS are the result of an impairment in linguistic or speech motor systems, or both (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2007). Most research, however, has failed to explicitly consider a developmental perspective of the disorder, arguably limiting the associated interpretations that often (implicitly) assume an established underlying system (Maassen, 2002). One of the key tenets of such a developmental perspective is the possibility of an original core deficit in one system, with negative consequences for aspects of the system that subsequently develop.A mixed-methodology paradigm was employed in the present research in order to explore the core deficit in CAS. ...
