Abstract

Bilateral lesions of the thalamus may yield severe neuropsychological disturbances, including memory, speech, and visuospatial dysfunction; furthermore, in some instances, a condition known as thalamic dementia may develop [3,6,8,11,19], in which amnesia, speech disturbances, and confusion may be associated with apathy, flattened affect, and aspontaneity of motor acts.
