The relationship between buccofacial and limb apraxia

Academic Article

Abstract

  • There are at least two possible models depicting the relationship between buccofacial and limb apraxia. First, apraxia can be viewed as a unitary motor disorder which transcends the output modalities of both buccofacial and limb output. A high degree of similarity between the two types of apraxia would support this model. Alternatively, the relationship between buccofacial and limb apraxia may not include a unitary mechanism. The presence of quantitative and qualitative differences between buccofacial and limb performance would support this nonunitary model. The results of the present study support the nonunitary model. © 1991.
