Confabulation in anterior communicating artery syndrome

Confabulation in anterior communicating artery syndrome

(p.13) Chapter 1 Confabulation in anterior communicating artery syndrome

John DeLuca

Oxford University Press

Advancements in technology and medicine have increased the survival rate from surgery for cerebral aneurysms. Increased survival has directed attention away from issues of mortality toward those regarding quality of life. As such, questions regarding quality of life have been at the forefront of research with patients surviving aneurysms of the anterior communicating artery (ACoA). This chapter discusses the behavioural and neural mechanisms of confabulation following ACoA aneurysm.

Keywords:   cerebral aneurysms, anterior communicating artery, confabulation, confabulatory behaviour, ACoA aneurysm
