    Apraxia is an acquired disorder of motor planning, but is not caused by incoordination, sensory loss, or failure to comprehend simple commands (which can be tested by asking[slideshare.net] Apraxias are generally associated with lesions of the dominant PARIETAL LOBE and supramarginal gyrus. (From Adams et al. 20.[sentencedict.com] Lesions that affect the premotor area may produce apraxia and mild rigidity but no loss of strength, whereas those that affect the motor cortex can produce contralateral weakness[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
