This chapter examines the clinical characteristics of anosognosia for hemiplegia, the false beliefs reported by patients, its associations and dissociation with other neuropsychological symptoms, and the anatomical correlation of the disorder. It argues that anosognosia is due to the failure of a motor-monitoring component that does not detect the mismatch between a desired action and the actual status of the sensorimotor system in the face of an intact capacity of programming movements and forming sensorimotor predictions. This chapter provides data strongly suggesting that motor-intentional processes are still available in hemiplegic anosognosic patients.

Keywords:   anosognia, hemiplegia, neuropsychological symptoms, sensimotor system, desired action, motor intentional processes
