Alexia and Agraphia: The Classic Picture ALEXIA IS THE ACQUIRED INABILITY TO COMPREHEND WRITTEN LANGUAGE Alexia & Agraphia

Slide 2

Classic Types of Alexia 1) Alexia connected with tactile aphasia , more often than not connected with the overwhelming back fleeting flap. 2) Alexia with agraphia , normally connected with an injury of the rakish gyrus . 3) Alexia without agraphia , additionally called unadulterated agnosic alexia and generally connected with disturbance of the splenium of the corpus callosum. Related Symptoms Impaired capacity to duplicate Acalculia Oral dialect ordinary (some gentle anomia) Writing and spelling normalish Right homonymous hemianopsia Occasional visual agnosia for hues and protests Alexia & Agraphia

Preliminary Comments: Alexia without agraphia = unadulterated word visual deficiency = dyslexia without agraphia = agnosic dyslexia This condition is described by a shortfall in word perusing, with a relative conservation of letter perusing. Regularly there is a privilege homonymous hemianopsia and a shading naming shortage. It is typically connected with harm of the left occipital flap and the splenium of the corpus callosum. This proposes a detachment between the left and right calcarine cortex and the left precise gyrus. The patient is normally ready to compose suddenly, however not read what has been composed. Patients can frequently distinguish words spelled aurally. Number perusing might be saved. The splenium is a back segment of the corpus callosum with interfaces the privilege calcarine cortex with the left calcarine cortex (And the other way around I assume, however no clinical condition has accentuated this reciprocal exchange of data).

Frequently there is a privilege homonymous hemianopsia and a shading naming shortfall. It is generally connected with harm of the left occipital projection and the splenium of the corpus callosum. This proposes a separation between the left and right calcarine cortex and the left precise gyrus. The patient is typically ready to compose suddenly, however not read what has been composed. Patients can regularly distinguish words spelled aurally. Number perusing might be saved. The splenium is a back segment of the corpus callosum which interfaces the privilege calcarine cortex with the left calcarine cortex (And the other way around I assume, however no clinical condition has accentuated this two-sided exchange of data).

AGRAPHIA Several scholars have recommended that composition and perusing, both superimposed on dialect, ought to be for all intents and purposes indistinguishable. Cases have incredible difference There are constantly engine and semantic segments to be surveyed in agraphia. Neurological characterizations:  unadulterated agraphia : foot of second frontal convolution (Exner's territory), unrivaled parietal flap, back perisylvian area, left caudate and inside case  aphasic agraphia (either graphemic shortfalls or agrammatic sentence structure)  agraphia with alexia (parietal agraphia, poor graphemes, poor spelling)  apraxic agraphia , grapheme creation troubles  spatial agraphia (injuries of nondominant parietal projection, level line issues, left side disregard, interruption of exhaust spaces) Alexia & Agraphia

Slide 11

Two noteworthy qualifications: Lexical, or orthographic, agraphia Phonological agraphia. Phonological agraphia: hindered capacity to spell or compose gibberish syllables and hogwash words Clearly we don't simply compose by making an interpretation of discourse sections to orthographic units Cases where they read a word by changing over its significance (photo of a mountain, to "m-o-u-n-t-an i-n, that is mountain") Deep dysgraphia: vessel for yacht, grin for chuckle Patients report that they feel as though they are composing as if replicating off a "internal screen.".. in any case, might depend on entire word Alexia & Agraphia

Does Exner's (1881) focus exist? Chedru, F., & Geshwind, N. (1972). Composing unsettling influences in intense confusional states. Neuropsychologia, 10 , 343-354. Immaculate agraphia is uncommon. Injury regularly found in left frontal region (Exner's (1881) written work focus is at foot of left second frontal convolution) Skepticism with respect to such focus: irregularity, & writers had seen cases because of harmfulness, reported cases frequently tumors and patients had more perplexity So they searched for it in intense confusional states Looked at 34 intense confusional cases 33/34 demonstrated variation from the norm in composing engine impedance spatial scatters hesitance to compose grammatical clutters spelling and other etymological issue So they finish up it is a multi-segment assignment, effortlessly disturbed by disarray Alexia & Agraphia

Geshwind, N. & Fusillo, M. (1966). Shading naming imperfections in relationship with alexia. Files of Neurology , 15, 137-146. Two hypotheses seem to have been proposed for shading naming deficiencies: the first is an aphasic inability to name hues, and the second is a visual-disengagement disorder. Tolerant here was beforehand depicted in Geshwind & Fuscillo (1964). The patient is depicted as a great immaculate alexia without agraphia with checked shading recognizable proof issues and right hemianopia. Shading observation was in place. Consequently the issue was in coordinating shading names to seen hues. The patient had dead tissue of the left calcarine cortex and the splenium of the corpus callosum. Why is shading naming in place? Why is protest naming and numbers not irritated in these cases? Alexia & Agraphia

Two hypotheses seem to have been proposed for shading naming shortfalls: the first is an aphasic inability to name hues, and the second is a visual-separation disorder. Quiet here was beforehand portrayed in Geshwind & Fuscillo (1964). The patient is portrayed as a great unadulterated alexia without agraphia with checked shading recognizable proof issues and right hemianopia. Shading recognition was in place. In this manner the issue was in coordinating shading names to seen hues. The patient had dead tissue of the left calcarine cortex and the splenium of the corpus callosum. Why is question naming and numbers not exasperates in these cases? Meyer (1905) proposed they invigorate material pictures encourage foremost. Alexia & Agraphia

Benson, D. F., Brown, J., & Tomlinson, E. B. (1971). Assortments of alexia. Neurology , 21, 951-957. Benson, Brown and Tomlinson (1971) show a progression of six cases contending for a practical and anatomical partition of word and letter alexia. The differentiating perspective would be that word and letter alexia are on a continuum, with letter alexia speaking to a more extreme issue. Cases 1 through 3 outline word alexia with relative saving of letter perusing and Cases 4 through 6 represent the inverse condition. The initial three cases speak to alexia without agraphia. Two of the patients demonstrated an underlying hemiparesis and hemisensory misfortune. Each of the three experienced issues perusing with sufficient written work. They experienced issues naming hues and could read letters however not words. This condition is reliably connected with harm to the overwhelming average occipital area (generally coming about because of an impediment of the left back cerebral supply route). The second three cases initially endured an intense non-familiar aphasia and right sided hemiparesis, with great understanding. Every one of the three cases recommended second rate left frontal contribution. Consequently, there are two courses to perusing represented by these cases. One course includes letter perusing and the second is entire word perusing. Alexia & Agraphia

Benson, Brown and Tomlinson (1971) display a progression of six cases contending for a practical and anatomical division of word and letter alexia. The differentiating perspective would be that word and letter alexia are on a continuum, with letter alexia speaking to a more serious issue. Cases 1 through 3 show word alexia with relative saving of letter perusing and Cases 4 through 6 delineate the inverse condition. The initial three cases speak to alexia without agraphia. Two of the patients demonstrated an underlying hemiparesis and trim isensory misfortune. Every one of the three experienced issues perusing with sufficient composition. They experienced issues naming hues and could read letters yet not words. This condition is reliably connected with harm to the predominant average occipital district (more often than not coming about because of an impediment of the left back cerebral course). The second three cases initially endured an intense non-familiar aphasia
