About this book
The current concept of dystonic movement connects the abnormal function of somatosensory pathways and somatosensory analyzers with the dystonic performance of motor action, which is based on the abnormality of sensorimotor integration. This concept is reflected not only in idiopathic dystonia, but also in secondary and symptomatic dystonias. This book provides a comprehensive history of the terms dystonia and dystonic, the physiology of dystonic movement, and the genetics and clinical appearance of primary and secondary dystonias. Reflecting the latest research findings, Dystonia and Dystonic Syndromes offers an in-depth discussion of current treatment options available for dystonia, including pharmacotherapy, surgery, and neurorehabilitation. As such, it offers a valuable reference guide for practitioners in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and neuroradiology, as well as for neuroscientists.
