Das schnelle Erkennen der facettenreichen und durch Störung der motorisch-kognitiven Fähigkeiten gekennzeichnete Gliedmaßenapraxie gestaltet sich häufig schwierig. Oft ist sie durch andere Beeinträchtigungen wie Aphasie, Gedächtnisprobleme oder Hemiplegie verdeckt. Der Artikel gibt Hinweise zur Diagnostik und zu therapeutischen Ansätzen.
