Sensory processing is impaired in focal hand dystonia (FHD), with most previous studies having evaluated only the symptomatic limb. The purpose of this study was to establish whether the sensory system is affected in other types of dystonias and whether the contralateral hand is also involved in FHD. We used a spatial acuity measure (Johnson-Van Boven-Phillips domes) to evaluate sensory spatial discrimination in both hands of patients with different forms of dystonias including primary… Expand
