It also occurs in some cases after [[brain surgery]], [[stroke]], [[infection]], [[tumor]], [[aneurysm]] and specific degenerative brain conditions such as [[Alzheimer’s disease]] and [[Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease]]. Other areas of the brain that are associated with alien hand syndrome are the frontal, [[Occipital lobe|occipital]] and [[parietal lobe]]s.+The '''parietal lobe''' is one of the four [[Lobes of the brain|major lobes]] of the [[cerebral cortex]] in the [[brain]] of [[mammal]]s. The parietal lobe is positioned above the [[occipital lobe]] and behind the [[frontal lobe]] and [[central sulcus]].
