Agnosia is a rare neurological disorder which causes the loss of ability to recognize any familiar person, object and sounds or the ability to comprehend the meaning of any object or difficulty in processing sensory information, such as touch, sound, and light even in the presence of intact senses.
In Agnosis, brain lesions develop due to neurological ailments or brain injury mainly in the occipital, temporal, or parietal lobe of the ventral stem of the brain. Other than neurological illness, Agnosia can also result from cerebral stroke, severe head injury, developmental disorders, or dementia.
There are three main types of agnosia: visual, auditory, and tactile.
