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)
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)
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.
Acquired or developmental conditions marked by an impaired ability to comprehend or generate spoken forms of language.
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.
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)
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.

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.

This condition may be associated with BRAIN DISEASES (including CEREBELLAR DISEASES and BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES); SPINAL CORD DISEASES; or PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES.
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)
Measurement of parameters of the speech product such as vocal tone, loudness, pitch, voice quality, articulation, resonance, phonation, phonetic structure and prosody.
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.
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)

Pure apraxic agraphia with abnormal writing stroke sequences: report of a Japanese patient with a left superior parietal haemorrhage. (1/188)

A 67 year old Japanese male patient had pure agraphia after a haemorrhage in the left superior parietal lobule. He developed difficulty in letter formation but showed no linguistic errors, consistent with the criteria of apraxic agraphia. He manifested a selective disorder of sequencing writing strokes, although he was able to orally state the correct sequences. The patient's complete recovery after 1 month, without new learning, showed that he had manifested a selective disorder of writing stroke sequences. These findings indicate that the final stage of the execution of writing according to acquired sequential memory shown as a stroke sequence can be selectively disturbed, and should be considered to be distinct from the ability of character imagery and the knowledge of the writing stroke sequence itself. This case also indicates that the left superior parietal lobule plays an important part in the execution of writing.  (+info)

Impaired dexterity of the ipsilateral hand after stroke and the relationship to cognitive deficit. (2/188)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous research has reported impaired hand function on the "unaffected" side after stroke, but its incidence, origins, and impact on rehabilitation remain unclear. This study investigated whether impairment of ipsilateral dexterity is common early after middle cerebral artery stroke and explored the relationship to cognitive deficit. METHODS: Thirty patients within 1 month of an infarct involving the parietal or posterior frontal lobe (15 left and 15 right hemisphere) used the ipsilateral hand in tests that simulated everyday hand functions. Performance was compared with that of healthy age-matched controls using the same hand. Standardized tests were used to assess apraxia, visuospatial ability, and aphasia. RESULTS: All patients were able to complete the dexterity tests, but video analysis showed that performance was slow and clumsy compared with that of controls (P<0.001). Impairment was most severe after left hemisphere damage, and apraxia was a strong correlate of increased dexterity errors (P<0.01), whereas reduced ipsilateral grip strength correlated with slowing (P<0.05). The pattern of performance was different for patients with right hemisphere damage. Here there was no correlation between grip strength and slowing, while dexterity errors appeared to be due to visuospatial problems. CONCLUSIONS: Subtle impairments in dexterity of the ipsilateral hand are common within 1 month of stroke. Ipsilateral sensorimotor losses may contribute to these impairments, but the major factor appears to be the presence of cognitive deficits affecting perception and control of action. The nature of these deficits varies with side of brain damage. The effect of impaired dexterity on functional outcome is not yet known.  (+info)

Spatial deficits in ideomotor limb apraxia. A kinematic analysis of aiming movements. (3/188)

Ideomotor limb apraxia is a classic neurological disorder manifesting as a breakdown in co-ordinated limb control with spatiotemporal deficits. We employed kinematic analyses of simple aiming movements in left hemisphere-damaged patients with and without limb apraxia and a normal control group to examine preprogramming and response implementation deficits in apraxia. Damage to the frontal and parietal lobes was more common in apraxics, but neither frontal nor parietal damage was associated with different arm movement deficits. Limb apraxia was associated with intact preprogramming but impaired response implementation. The response implementation deficits were characterized by spatial but not temporal deficits, consistent with decoupling of spatial and temporal features of movement in limb apraxia. While the apraxics' accuracy was normal when visual feedback was available, it was impaired when visual feedback of either target location or hand position was unavailable. This finding suggests that ideomotor limb apraxia is associated with disruption of the neural representations for the extrapersonal (spatial location) and intrapersonal (hand position) features of movement. The non-apraxic group's normal kinematic performance demonstrates that the deficits demonstrated in the apraxic group are not simply a reflection of left hemisphere damage per se.  (+info)

Dyspraxia in a patient with corticobasal degeneration: the role of visual and tactile inputs to action. (4/188)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the roles of visual and tactile information in a dyspraxic patient with corticobasal degeneration (CBD) who showed dramatic facilitation in miming the use of a tool or object when he was given a tool to manipulate; and to study the nature of the praxic and neuropsychological deficits in CBD. METHODS: The subject had clinically diagnosed CBD, and exhibited alien limb behaviour and striking ideomotor dyspraxia. General neuropsychological evaluation focused on constructional and visuospatial abilities, calculation, verbal fluency, episodic and semantic memory, plus spelling and writing because impairments in this domain were presenting complaints. Four experiments assessed the roles of visual and tactile information in the facilitation of motor performance by tools. Experiment 1 evaluated the patient's performance of six limb transitive actions under six conditions: (1) after he described the relevant tool from memory, (2) after he was shown a line drawing of the tool, (3) after he was shown a real exemplar of the tool, (4) after he watched the experimenter perform the action, (5) while he was holding the tool, and (6) immediately after he had performed the action with the tool but with the tool removed from his grasp. Experiment 2 evaluated the use of the same six tools when the patient had tactile but no visual information (while he was blindfolded). Experiments 3 and 4 assessed performance of actions appropriate to the same six tools when the patient had either neutral or inappropriate tactile feedback-that is, while he was holding a non-tool object or a different tool. RESULTS: Miming of tool use was not facilitated by visual input; moreover, lack of visual information in the blindfolded condition did not reduce performance. The principal positive finding was a dramatic facilitation of the patient's ability to demonstrate object use when he was holding either the appropriate tool or a neutral object. Tools inappropriate to the requested action produced involuntary performance of the stimulus relevant action. CONCLUSIONS: Tactile stimulation was paramount in the facilitation of motor performance in tool use by this patient with CBD. This outcome suggests that tactile information should be included in models which hypothesise modality specific inputs to the action production system. Significant impairments in spelling and letter production that have not previously been reported in CBD have also been documented.  (+info)

Perception of self-generated movement following left parietal lesion. (5/188)

Three apraxic patients with lesions in the left parietal cortex were required to execute finger movements with either hand, while the visual feedback they received about the movement was manipulated systematically. We used a device which allowed us to present on a video monitor either the patient's hand or the examiner's hand simultaneously performing an identical or a different movement. In each trial, patients were required to decide whether the hand shown on the screen was their own or not. Hand movements produced in response to verbal command included simple (single-finger extension) and complex gestures (multi-finger extension). Ownership judgements were analysed and compared with those produced by six normal controls and two non-apraxic neurological patients. Apraxic patients and controls accurately recognized their own hand on the screen (own movement condition) and correctly identified the viewed hand as the examiner's when it performed a movement different from their own movement (incongruent movement condition). However, when the viewed hand was the examiner's hand executing their own movement (congruent movement condition), apraxic patients were significantly more impaired than controls. When the results were analysed as a function of gesture type, the number of correct responses was significantly lower for apraxic patients with respect to controls only for complex gestures. Interestingly, when patients executed the finger gestures inaccurately, they still failed to recognize the examiner's hand as alien, and claimed that the correct movement presented on the screen was their own. These results confirm that parietal lesions alter the representational aspects of gestures, and suggest a failure in evaluating and comparing internal and external feedback about movement. We conclude that the parietal cortex plays an important role in generating and maintaining a kinaesthetic model of ongoing movements.  (+info)

Dark adaptation, motor skills, docosahexaenoic acid, and dyslexia. (6/188)

Dyslexia is a widespread condition characterized by difficulty with learning and movement skills. It is frequently comorbid with dyspraxia (developmental coordination disorder), the chief characteristic of which is impaired movement skills, indicating that there may be some common biological basis to the conditions. Visual and central processing deficits have been found. The long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) are important components of retinal and brain membranes. In the preliminary studies reported here, dark adaptation was shown to be impaired in 10 dyslexic young adults when compared with a similar control group (P < 0.05, repeated-measures analysis of variance); dark adaptation improved in 5 dyslexia patients after supplementation with a docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-rich fish oil for 1 mo (P < 0.05, paired t test on final rod threshold); and movement skills in a group of 15 dyspraxic children improved after 4 mo of supplementation with a mixture of high-DHA fish oil, evening primrose oil, and thyme oil (P < 0.007 for manual dexterity, P < 0.02 for ball skills, and P < 0.03 for static and dynamic balance; paired t tests). The studies were small and had designs that did not allow firm conclusions to be made. However, when considered with other evidence from another closely related condition, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, for which reduced ability to elongate and desaturate the essential fatty acids linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid to arachidonic acid and DHA, respectively, has been proposed, the studies suggest that more research, including double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, would be useful to clarify the benefits of LCPUFAs in dyslexia and other closely related conditions.  (+info)

Portal systemic encephalopathy presenting with dressing and constructional apraxia. (7/188)

We report a case with portal systemic encephalopathy who presented with dressing and constructional apraxia and subtle weakness of the left hand. We initially suspected a cerebrovascular attack in the right cerebral hemisphere, but brain T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed high intensity in the basal ganglia and hyperammonemia was detected. We performed abdominal MR angiography, which visualized an intrahepatic portal systemic shunt. Cerebral blood flow, measured by xenon-enhanced computed tomography, was decreased in the bilateral, but more dominantly right-sided, parietal watershed regions. We speculate that these boundary territories might be susceptible to damage by toxic metabolites of hepatic encephalopathy.  (+info)

Worster-Drought syndrome, a mild tetraplegic perisylvian cerebral palsy. Review of 47 cases. (8/188)

A retrospective case-note analysis was undertaken of 47 children with a congenital upper motor neurone bulbar palsy (excluding pure speech dyspraxia) to clarify the phenotype of Worster-Drought syndrome (WDS) and to record its associated features and complications. The results revealed that the study children had significant bulbar problems (with 80% still needing a modified diet and a similar number using augmentative communication methods at last review). There were also high rates of predictable bulbar complications (86% had dribbling, 60% had glue ear, gastro-oesophageal reflux in 40%, history of poor nutrition in 40% and aspiration in 40%). Most of the children had additional complex impairments (91% had mild pyramidal tetraplegia, 81% learning difficulties, 60% congenital defects, 41% neuropsychiatric problems and 28% epilepsy). Over half of the children had significant medical problems in the first year, but mean age at diagnosis was 6 years. There were no obvious causes in pregnancy or birth. Six children had a family history of WDS and 32% (12/37) had abnormal neuroimaging including five with bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria. In our experience, WDS is not uncommon, is relatively easily diagnosed and is crucial not to miss as the management of these children's multiple impairments is complex and requires a careful team approach. WDS falls clearly within the cerebral palsies as a syndrome that includes motor impairment arising from static damage to the brain in early life. The common presence of cognitive, behavioural and seizure impairments strongly supports the cerebral cortical (presumably perisylvian) localization. Its core elements are a suprabulbar paresis, a mild spastic tetraplegia and a significant excess of cognitive and behavioural impairments and epilepsy. The complete overlap in phenotype between WDS and the bilateral perisylvian syndrome leads us to propose that they are the same condition. WDS is startlingly absent from epidemiological studies of the cerebral palsies and rarely diagnosed, presumably because of lack of clinical awareness of the condition and lack of major gross motor impairments.  (+info)

Ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 1 is an autosomal-recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a childhood onset of slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia, followed by oculomotor apraxia and a severe primary motor peripheral axonal motor neuropathy. Ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 1 is caused by bi-allelic mutations in APTX (chromosome 9p21.1). Our patient has a clinical presentation that is typical for ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 1 with no particularly severe phenotype. Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification analysis resulted in the identification of a homozygous deletion of all coding APTX exons (3 to 9). SNP array analysis using the Illumina Infinium CytoSNP-850 K microarray indicated that the deletion was about 62 kb. Based on the SNP array results, the breakpoints were found using direct sequence analysis: c.-5 + 1225_*44991del67512, p.0?. Both parents were heterozygous for the deletion. Homozygous complete APTX deletions have been described in literature for two
TY - JOUR. T1 - Breakpoint localization using array-CGH in three siblings with an unbalanced 4q;16q translocation and childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). AU - Shriberg, Lawrence D.. AU - Jakielski, Kathy J.. AU - El-Shanti, Hatem. PY - 2008/9/1. Y1 - 2008/9/1. N2 - We report clinical, cytogenetic, and comparative genomic hybridization findings for three siblings with an unbalanced 4q;16q translocation, minor malformations, and cognitive abnormalities, including childhood apraxia of speech, a rare, severe motor speech disorder. Breakpoint findings indicate that in addition to possible contributions from duplicated genes on chromosome 16, haploinsufficiency of one or more of 11 genes deleted in the telomeric region of the long arm of chromosome 4 is the likely cause of the speech disorder, the associated impairments in cognition and language, and the dysmorphic features. The present findings are the first to document childhood apraxia of speech in a multiplex family using contemporary speech ...
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 ...
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

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 ...

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 ...
Childhood apraxia of speech - Comprehensive overview covers symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment for this childhood motor speech disorder.
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. ...

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 ...
In botulinum toxin failures it is important to differentiate whether the patient has failed treatment because of the inability of botulinum toxin to relieve squeezing, or whether opening the eyelids is the problem. This can be determined by having the patient vigorously squeeze the eyelids closed while the examiners fingers attempt to pry the eyelids open. If the patient has markedly weakened eyelid squeezing, then botulinum toxin is working. We have shown that in blepharospasm patients who appear to be botulinum toxin failures, the incidence of apraxia of lid opening approximates 50%. It is important for physicians and patients to diagnose and understand apraxia of lid opening, as it is the most common cause of failure or inadequate response with botulinum toxin therapy. Increasing the dose of botulinum toxin beyond what is necessary to relieve spasm frequently makes ptosis (droopy eyelids). After apraxia of lid opening the next most common cause of inability to adequately open the eyelids is ...

Dyspraxia is a Specific Learning Difficulty that affects body coordination, fine motor skills, and can also affect speech and articulation as well as perception and thought. Dyspraxia can cause difficulties for an individual in a variety of areas in life, including education, work and employment.. Early childhood indicators of Dyspraxia can include difficulty with self-care, writing and typing, riding a bike or other activities that involve balance and coordination. Within adults it can affect ones ability to learn to drive, organise or undertake DIY activities. As with other Specific Learning Difficulties such as Dyslexia, people with Dyspraxia can experience problems with memory and the processing of information.. Having Dyspraxia is not an indicator of low intellectual ability. This is a common misconception. The term Specific Learning Difficulty is and an umbrella term for Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D). Each of these ...
Ten patients with gegenhalten of the upper limb of mixed aetiology were studied, in nine of whom an association with dyspraxia was found. In four of the patients, the rigidity became more pronounced after the instruction to relax, and only one patient showed improvement after this instruction. In these patients, the resistance to movement, evident as gegenhalten, may be a direct consequence of the dyspraxia.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Apraxia of speech. T2 - An overview. AU - Ogar, Jennifer. AU - Slama, Hilary. AU - Dronkers, Nina. AU - Amici, Serena. AU - Gorno-Tempini, Maria Luisa. PY - 2005/12. Y1 - 2005/12. N2 - Apraxia of speech (AOS) is a motor speech disorder that can occur in the absence of aphasia or dysarthria. AOS has been the subject of some controversy since the disorder was first named and described by Darley and his Mayo Clinic colleagues in the 1960s. A recent revival of interest in AOS is due in part to the fact that it is often the first symptom of neurodegenerative diseases, such as primary progressive aphasia and corticobasal degeneration. This article will provide a brief review of terminology associated with AOS, its clinical hallmarks and neuroanatomical correlates. Current models of motor programming will also be addressed as they relate to AOS and finally, typical treatment strategies used in rehabilitating the articulation and prosody deficits associated with AOS will be ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Speech planning happens before speech execution. T2 - Online reaction time methods in the study of apraxia of speech. AU - Maas, Edwin. AU - Mailend, Marja Liisa. PY - 2012/10/1. Y1 - 2012/10/1. N2 - Purpose: The purpose of this article is to present an argument for the use of online reaction time (RT) methods to the study of apraxia of speech (AOS) and to review the existing small literature in this area and the contributions it has made to our fundamental understanding of speech planning (deficits) in AOS. Method: Following a brief description of limitations of offline perceptual methods, we provide a narrative review of various types of RT paradigms from the (speech) motor programming and psycholinguistic literatures and their (thus far limited) application with AOS. Conclusion: On the basis of the review of the literature, we conclude that with careful consideration of potential challenges and caveats, RT approaches hold great promise to advance our understanding of AOS, 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 ...

Dyspraxia is a condition characterized by language problems, with a degree of difficulty with perception and thought in some cases, and though the intelligence of the individual is not affected, learning problems can be caused in children, and the brain is unable to process information to allow a full transmission of neural messages. This is the forum for discussing anything related to this health condition
Dyspraxia is a developmental disorder. It can affect all phases and aspects of a childs growth including physical, social, memory, language, sensory development, intellectual and emotional growth.
As a secondary schoolteacher, Im only tooaware of how devastatingdyslexia can be for children.Ive seen bright kids become completely demoralised by the fact they cannot read. They fall further and further behind their peers, and its common to leave school with no qualifications. Its a scenario no parent wants for their child. So when it emerged that my own son, Kieran, now10, was struggling to read, I was fearful for his future.. He was diagnosed aged seven with dyslexia and dyspraxia, and I was shocked by how little help there was. While his reading was down on the fifth percentile, his IQ was on the 85th percentile, so he wasnt considered far enough behind to warrant extra support at school. In fact, the disparity between his intelligence and his academic performance only added to his frustration - Kieran was bright so he knew he should be able to do all the things his friends could.. At school he went under the radar.In a class of 33 kids, he became adept at simply disappearing, ...

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 ...

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. ...
More than 30 mutations in the APTX gene have been found to cause ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 1. This condition is characterized by difficulty coordinating movements (ataxia) and problems with side-to-side movements of the eyes (oculomotor apraxia). Most mutations change single protein building blocks (amino acids) in aprataxin, resulting in an unstable aprataxin protein that is quickly broken down in the cell. A lack of functional aprataxin disrupts DNA repair and can lead to an accumulation of damage in cells, particularly affecting cells in the part of the brain involved in coordinating movements (the cerebellum). This accumulation can lead to cell death in the cerebellum, causing the characteristic movement problems of ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 1. ...

Making the film has sent Coleman on a deep dive of the aphasia and apraxia world. After joining Facebook groups and meeting people with aphasia and apraxia, he has learned about key issues such as insurance, financial issues, divorce, family, children, jobs, and communication issues. Coleman admits that part of his understanding comes from his insider perspective. People try to understand but it is truly hard to understand unless they have aphasia. Movies allow the audience to experience the world from a different point-of-view, and hopefully, they will gain a better understanding.. His wish in making the film is to bring the struggles of people with aphasia and apraxia to the general public. I hope this film helps many with aphasia and apraxia. I also hope a large part of the audience are people who have never heard of aphasia or apraxia because I want to educate them.

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 ...
A system may include a server device. The server device may receive, from a device, a media item in a first format associated with the device, and determine a transcoding priority to be associated with transcoding of the media item based on information regarding a transcoding job request for one or more other media items received from the user and at least one of information associated with the media item or information associated with a user of the device. The server device may also select, based on the transcoding priority and at least one of the information associated with the media item or the information associated with the user, the media item, from among a number of media items, associated with one or more users, to be transcoded, and transcode the media item to a transcoded media item in a second format that is different than the first format.
Developmental apraxia of speech is a diagnosis that is used clinically, usually to describe children with multiple and severe difficulties with speech sound acquisition. The precise criteria for this diagnostic label have been the source of debate in the research and clinical literature. Most treatment protocols have not withstood controlled investigations of their efficacy. The goal of this seminar is to define developmental apraxia of speech, determine how it can be differentiated from other speech acquisition problems, and become familiar with treatment protocols that appear to be efficacious. These goals will be met by investigating models of speech production and its development, becoming familiar with the experimental literature that has focused on differential diagnosis of developmental apraxia, and evaluating different regimens that have been recommended for treatment of this disorder ...

Despite the high incidence of the motor cognitive deficit apraxia after left-hemispheric stroke, evidence-based therapies do not exist. This randomized controlled clinical trial (RCT) investigates whether anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as an add-on therapy during neuro-rehabilitation can ameliorate apraxic deficits in patients with left hemisphere stroke. Therefore, anodal tDCS is applied over the parietal cortex of the left, lesioned hemisphere with an intensity of 2 mA for 10 minutes at a time on 5 consecutive days in combination with motor tasks before and after the stimulation. The effect of the stimulation is compared to a sham stimulation. Moreover, application of a pre-programmed study mode ensures a double-blind study design (patient and investigator). The performance in the apraxia test KAS (Cologne Apraxia Screening) 3-4 days after the last stimulation, compared to baseline, serves as primary endpoint of the study. Secondary endpoints are evaluated using various ...
Probable helicase senataxin is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the SETX gene. This gene encodes a protein named for its homology to the Sen1p protein of fungi which has RNA helicase activity encoded by a domain at the C-terminal end of the protein. The protein encoded by this gene contains a DNA/RNA helicase domain at its C-terminal end which suggests that it may be involved in both DNA and RNA processing. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Ataxia oculomotor apraxia type 2 (AOA2) and an autosomal dominant form of juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS4).

Defects in cellular DNA repair processes have been linked to genome instability, heritable cancers, and premature aging syndromes. Yet defects in some repair processes manifest themselves primarily in neuronal tissues. This review focuses on studies defining the molecular defects associated with several human neurological disorders, particularly ataxia with oculomotor apraxia 1 (AOA1) and spinocerebellar ataxia with axonal neuropathy 1 (SCAN1). A picture is emerging to suggest that brain cells, due to their nonproliferative nature, may be particularly prone to the progressive accumulation of unrepaired DNA lesions.

Conferences for health and education professionals in the field of childhood developmental disorders, including adhd, dyslexia, dyspraxia, autistic spectrum disorders and speech and language disorders. ...
In typically developing speech, children make word attempts and get feedback from others and from their own internal systems regarding how well the words they produced matched the ones that they wanted to produce. Children use this information the next time they attempt the words and essentially are able to learn from experience. Usually once syllables and words are spoken repeatedly, the speech motor act becomes automatic. Speech motor plans and programs are stored in the brain and can be accessed effortlessly when they are needed. Children with apraxia of speech have difficulty in this aspect of speech. It is believed that children with CAS may not be able to form or access speech motor plans and programs or that these plans and programs are faulty for some reason. ...

The therapist will use a standardised motor skill screening assessment to help gather baseline data on skill levels.. ...

As Felix enters his teens, the line between dyspraxia and normal scuzzy behaviour is beginning to blur.

How we can use it in Tx: Basically these apps are collections of vocabulary words with pictures, text, audio, descriptions, and some built in customization and stats. As an aside, theres a few other options that would only come in handy if working with kiddos (like reinforcement and chimes), so if youre interested in using the apps for the intended population be aware theres still more to love. As far as my intended population, adults, go, theres a few ways I can imagine using these apps for word-finding goals: Id remove the text label and let pts name the words from pictures, or from the descriptions (the description button at the bottom of each card includes text and audio), or from both. I can use almost any app for memory work: choose a few words and ask the pt to remember them whether in sequence or not. But what Ive used these cards the most for is my apraxia pt who is only just starting to be able to repeat words. This pt benefits from seeing the word he is trying to say in print ...
This mutation was originally found in a Japanese individual who presented with disorientation at age 47 and subsequently developed rapidly progressing global cognitive impairment with apraxia and memory loss over the next two years (Ikeda et al., 1996). The probands mother also developed progressive dementia at age 55. No family members in addition to the proband were available to confirm co-segregation of the mutation with disease. However, the mutation was absent from 140 controls of Japanese origin, 200 white controls, and 100 subjects of different ethnicities suffering from sporadic AD with age of onset greater than 65 years. The mutation was also identified in two members of a second Japanese family with a mean AD age of onset of 50 years (Aoki et al., 1997). The mutation was absent from one unaffected family member and 70 unrelated Japanese controls. Both mutation carriers, a parent and child, first developed memory impairment followed by personality changes. Neuropathology ...
