An earlier post was about signs that constitute Gerstmann’s syndrome, or findings in lesions (vascular / trauma / space-occupying) of the dominant parietal lobe (usually left). What do we find when the non-dominant parietal lobe is involved?
- dressing apraxia
- sensory and visual inattention
- spatial neglect
- constructional apraxia
And non-specific parietal-lobe findings, that can occur when either lobe is involved:
- lower quadrantic hemianopia
