A 55 year old Karen Byrne from New Jersey is suffering from this condition which is popularly termed as Alien Hand Syndrome. Her left hand and left leg function as if they are under the control of some alien intelligence. Alien hand syndrome (AHS) is a rare neurological disorder that causes hand movement without the person being aware of what is happening or having control over the action. The afflicted person may sometimes reach for objects and manipulate them without wanting to do so, even to the point of having to use the controllable hand to restrain the alien hand. Karen was initially suffering from Epilepsy, for which she underwent surgery. The Surgeon cut her corpus callosum in order to cure her epilepsy. But unfortunately it created a new problem for her.
