Consensus Statement of the Movement Disorder Society on Tremor
This is a proposal of the Movement Disorder Society for a clinical classification of tremors. The classification is based on the distinction between rest, postural, simple kinetic, and intentionExpand
Consensus Statement on the classification of tremors. from the task force on tremor of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society
Consensus criteria for classifying tremor disorders were published by the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society in 1998. Subsequent advances with regard to essential tremor, tremorExpand
A study of tremor in multiple sclerosis.
Patients with abnormal tremor were more likely than those without tremor to be wheelchair dependent and have a worse Expanded Disability Systems Score, but Barthel activities of daily living indices and cognitive scores were comparable in the two groups. Expand
Assessing tremor severity.
The results show that, for the purposes of routine assessment and therapeutic trials, a clinical rating scale can produce reliable results which are a more valid index of tremor induced disability than standard postural accelerometry. Expand
Serotonergic mechanisms responsible for levodopa-induced dyskinesias in Parkinson's disease patients.
Striatal serotonergic terminals contribute to LIDs pathophysiology via aberrant processing of exogenous levodopa and release of dopamine as false neurotransmitter in the denervated striatum of PD patients with LIDs, which supports the development of selective serotonin receptor type 1A agonists for use as antidyskinetic agents in PD.

Direct economic impact of Parkinson's disease: A research survey in the United Kingdom
PD imposes significant direct costs on public services and on individuals and these costs should be taken into account when allocating public funds. Expand
The role of the subthalamic nucleus in response inhibition: Evidence from deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease
A role for the STN in response inhibition, which can be interrupted by DBS, is observable only when more general improvements in Parkinson's function are minimised. Expand
Botulinum toxin (Dysport) treatment of hip adductor spasticity in multiple sclerosis: a prospective, randomised, double blind, placebo controlled, dose ranging study.
Dysport reduced the degree of hip adductor spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis, and this benefit was evident despite the concomitant use of oral antispasticity medication and analgesics. Expand
The sensory and motor representation of synchronized oscillations in the globus pallidus in patients with primary dystonia.
In 15 patients with primary dystonia who were treated with bilateral chronic pallidal stimulation, the sensorimotor modulation of the oscillatory local field potentials (LFPs) recorded from the pallidal electrodes were investigated and correlated with the surface electromyograms in the affected muscles.

Altered eye‐to‐foot coordination in standing parkinsonian patients during large gaze and whole‐body reorientations
Although the eye‐to‐foot turning synergy is preserved in early‐stage parkinsonism, quantitative differences are prominent, particularly a larger ocular (and smaller head‐trunk) contribution in patients, particularly in patients. Expand
