Anosognosia : Recognizing a Problem at the Right Time

Brain & Behavior

Recently, I presented a critique for my Brain and Behavior in Psychology course at Harvard. The critique and presentation was of my analysis of a medical journal article, Anosognosia, neglect, extinction and lesion site predict impairment of daily living after right-hemispheric stroke. I am reviewing my previous analysis and wanted to post these ideas-like the same way the Kardashian family are impelled to publically announce the minutiae of their lives, my brainstorming process, definitely flawed and totally unfounded, must be shared on the internet.

I’ll be posting more on my thoughts soon.

Disclaimer: I am not a PSYCH or neuroscience major, but am studying the cognitive experience through my grad program in Information Systems from the perspective of User Experience Research and Instructional Design. I only identify as an arm chair neuroscience enthusiast, and am not pretending to be anything other!
