Abstract

20 patients with Parkinson's disease were tested for visuoperceptive disabilities and constructional apraxia versus a group of 20 controls. The visuoperceptive disabilities in the parkinsonians were relatively independent of mental deterioration, where present. The visuoperceptive disabilities were responsible for constructional apraxia.
