disconnection_syndrome

It is a general term for a number of neurological symptoms caused by damage to the white matter axons of communication pathways—via lesions to association fibers or commissural fibers—in the cerebrum, independent of any lesions to the cortex.

The behavioral effects of such disconnections are relatively predictable in adults.

see Callosal disconnection syndrome.
