Ross considers loss of emotional expression as a motor aprosodia that is analogous to motor aphasia.
Psychiatric patients with loss of emotional expression and neurologic patients with motor aprosodia share similar features: expressionless face, monotonous voice, loss of speech rhythm and musicality, loss of emotional gesturing, and apparent absence of mood.
From a neuropsychiatrie viewpoint, the pattern for schizophrenia is an illness that develops in a young adult without known CNS coarse disease, and is characterized by motor and receptive aprosodia; frontal lobe and cerebellar motor dysregulation; perceptual disturbances; and fluent, paraphasic speech with intact repetition.
In motor aphasias there is an impairment in the fluent and clear articulation of language, whereas in motor aprosodia there is an impairment in the emotional expression of language.
Thus, as motor aphasia involves the dominant frontal regions, motor aprosodia involves the nondominant frontal regions.
Why hasn’t the L = A = L = A poet done some mathematical wordplay with: Prozac (prose) and the symtom of aprosodia and language cognition and the idea of poetry and POETRY and the Lilly gift.
