Ideational Apraxia

In the early 1900s, the inability to carry out a series of acts, an ideational plan, was studied and termed ideational apraxia. When performing a task that requires a series of acts (such as making a sandwich), patients have difficulty sequencing the acts in the proper order.

It was noted that most of the patients with this type of ideational apraxia have a degenerative dementia. Frontal lobe dysfunction is also often associated with temporal order processing deficits, and the inability to correctly sequence a series of acts may be related to frontal lobe degeneration. Patients who select the wrong movement (content errors) have also been diagnosed as having ideational apraxia, but in order to avoid confusion these errors may be classified as conceptual apraxia.
