Abstract

Akinetic mutism (AM) is defined as a form of stupor, characterised by severe apathy. In AM the patient is alert, conscious of surroundings and able to see and hear, but unable to move (akinetic) and unable to communicate (mutism). Minimal motor responses to painful stimuli are typically preserved.
