Abstract

Left-hemisphere brain damage may result in limb apraxia, a deficit in the processing of gestures ([Rothi et al., 1991] and Cubelli et al., 2000 R. Cubelli, C. Marchetti, G. Boscolo and S. Della Sala, Cognition in action: Testing a model of limb apraxia, Brain and Cognition 44 (2000), pp. 144-165. Abstract | PDF (353 K) | View Record in Scopus | Cited By in Scopus (53)[Cubelli et al., 2000]) which may be transitive (i.e., actual object use), intransitive (i.e., communicative), pantomime (i.e., a gestures that describe the object use), or meaningless gestures (i.e., arbitrary gestures that have no semantics).
