Aprosexia, Hyperprosexia, and Paraprosexia are closely related psychological and neuro-psychiatric phenomena associated with attention and concentration. They typically occurs in patients suffering traumatic brain injuries or sensory deficits.

  • Aprosexia is an abnormal inability to pay attention,
  • Hyperprosexia is the abnormal state in which a person concentrates on one thing to the exclusion of everything else.
  • Paraprosexia is the inability to pay attention to any one thing (a state of constant

distraction).

EtiologyEdit
