Disturbances of Higher Cortical Functions with Lesions of the Frontal Region

  • Aleksandr Romanovich Luria


In the preceding chapters disturbances of the higher cortical functions associated with lesions of the cortical divisions of the auditory, optic, cutaneokinesthetic, and motor analyzers and of the overlapping cortical areas of these zones were examined. Cortical malfunctioning as a result of lesions of the primary and secondary fields of the cortical nuclei of the motor analyzer, the sensorimotor and premotor divisions of the cerebral cortex, was considered. In the present chapter we turn to the analysis of functional defects caused by lesions of the most complex cortical divisions of the motor analyzer, the frontal divisions of the brain.
