This article is devoted to animal models of tremors that emerge from lesions in the Guillain-Mollaret triangle.

Impaired feed-forward motor control delays the braking of rapid movements, resulting in target overshoot and subsequent oscillation. Transcortical and transcerebellar sensorimotor loops undergo oscillation at a… CONTINUE READING
