Alien hand syndrome

Alien hand syndrome

Alien hand syndrome is a rare neurological disorder, in which one hand functions involuntarily, often in direct conflict with the other hand, with the victim completely unaware of its actions. People affected by it can pick things up, throw them and even attempt to strangulate themselves, having to use the controllable hand to restrain the alien hand. There is no known cure for the alien hand syndrome.
