The temporal structure of arm movements was studied in nine cerebellar patients with mild impairment of the upper limbs and in six age-matched control subjects. The experimental paradigm consisted of visually guided, step tracking movements about the elbow. Movements ranged from 10 degrees to 70 degrees in amplitude and were made under different instructions (fast, fast/accurate, accurate). As in normal subjects, cerebellar patients were able to scale peak velocity with movement amplitude. This… CONTINUE READING
