Tactile agnosia is a disorder of object recognition from touch that cannot be explained by severe sensory-motor disturbance, inattentiveness, or general intellectual decline.

Orthographic stimuli are processed in the left inferior occipito-temporal cortex on or near the left fusiform gyrus Polk et al. Asymbolie tactile et hemiasomatognosie paroxystique et douloureuse. A Feature-Integration Theory of Attention. On this classification, those subjects with at least relatively normal elementary somatosensory function but an impairment in object identification through palpation who are impaired in matching items on the basis of tactile input and whose errors appear to reflect deficits in form, shape, or texture discrimination are considered apperceptive tactile agnosics; those subjects who perform well on tasks such as matching items by palpation and whose errors appear to reflect imprecision at the level of meaning e.


For example, he was unable to report both the color of the ink in which agnosiax word was written as well as the word.

In an investigation of 84 subjects with tactile object recognition impairments, Caselli reported substantial deficits in patients with normal or agmosias mild deficits in somatosensory processing; these and other data see also Hecaen ; Corkin demonstrate that significant disorders of somatosensory processing do not necessarily cause tactile agnosia; other investigators e.

She exhibited profound visual recognition problems and performed poorly on tasks requiring that she discriminate between different shapes. Evolutionary pressures would favor an animal that could easily recognize gnosiaa distinguish other animals that are potential predator or prey, or plants that are potential sources of food.

Individuals can match similar figures and copy a drawing, but cannot associate shapes with objects [1] e. The first detailed description of this syndrome was by Balintwho described a patient with bilateral posterior parietal infarcts who was able to identify visually presented familiar objects when presented in isolation but exhibited a striking difficulty in the processing of visual arrays.
