Apraxia Summary

Agnosia that is a loss of the ability to map out physical actions in order to repeat them in functional activities


Apraxia is a motor disorder caused by damage to the brain (specifically the posterior parietal cortex) in which the individual has difficulty with the motor planning to perform tasks or movements when asked, provided that the request or command is understood and the individual is willing to perform the task. The nature of the brain damage determines the severity, and the absence of sensory loss or paralysis helps to explain the level of difficulty.The term comes from the Greek ἀ- a- ("without") and πρᾶξις praxis ("action").
