What are the possible causes of agnosia?

Posted on April 28, 2015 9:27 am under Car Accidents

Agnosia is a brain condition that occurs when certain pathways in the brain that deliver sensory information have been compromised. Depending on its type, agnosia may affect how a person identifies objects and people through sight, hearing, and touch. Although self-limiting in most cases, individuals with agnosia would need the help of speech or occupational therapist to manage their deficits.

There are many possible causes of agnosia, including:

  • Brain tumor
  • Infarct in the brain
  • Brain abscess
  • Trauma caused by sudden blows

Although agnosia is rare, this brain condition can sometimes result from an injurious car-related incident caused by someone else’s recklessness on the road.
