BILATERAL HEMIANOPIA: true hemianopia. BILATERAL PREFRONTAL LESIONS: severe impairment in reporting the time of day and in decoding proverbs, perseveration (inflexible behavior, inability to change response sets), impaired response inhibition (impulsivity). BINASAL HEMIANOPIA: heteronymous hemianopia in which the defects are in the nasal half of the field of vision in each eye.

BASAL GANGI ON LESION: difficulty in rapid alternating sequences of movement (clumsiness); unable to inhibit approach behavior; damage to different parts can produce changes in posture, increases or decreases in muscle tone, and abnormal movements such as twitches, jerks, and tremors; see also Parkinson's Disease, Wilson's Disease, akinesia, dystonic postures.
