Alien hand syndrome (also known as anarchic hand or Dr. Strangelove syndrome) is a neurological disorder in which one of the hands of people who have it appears to take on a mind of its own. Alien hand syndrome is best documented in cases where a person has had the two hemispheres of their brain surgically separated, a procedure sometimes used to relieve the symptoms of extreme cases of epilepsy. It also occurs in some cases after other brain surgery, strokes, or infections. (wiki)
edit - would also be a kick-ass name for a band!
