Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) A first comprehensive theory on neural mechanism of apraxia was presented by Liepmann (1920) with several schematic diagrams. There have been done thereafter a number of studies on the mechanism of apraxia, none of which though seem to have surpassed the work of Liepmann and its comprehensive content. In the current article are presented at first some cases of our own exemplifying the validity of the Liepmann's schemata of apraxia, and some comments are made from a new viewpoint. Then with a different investigation which might develop the schemata of apraxia by Liepmann, a comprehensive hypothesis is proposed on the neural mechanism of voluntary action.
