Unawareness of disease following lesions of the right hemisphere: anosognosia for hemiplegia and anosognosia for hemianopia.


Unawareness of motor and visual-field defects was investigated in 97 right brain-damaged subjects. Both kinds of anosognosia were found to be double-dissociated from more elementary neurological disorders and from personal and extra-personal neglect. The relationships between anosognosia and unilateral neglect are discussed and allusion is made to the implications concerning the neurological organization of higher control functions.
