Neurology
In brief: Rarely
This is quite rare but can occur in partial complex seizures during which the patient is capable of semi-purposeful activity and is restrained or redirected from the aim of his/her attention.
Misperception of environmental stimuli, in certain circumstances, could also provoke this.
