The kinematic properties of upper limb trajectories of simple reaching movements have been analysed in patients with idiopathic torsion dystonia (ITD). The velocity profiles differed from those of neurologically healthy subjects by being less symmetric. In several patients movement execution was slow due to a longer deceleration time. This phenomenon was even more conspicuous in the absence of visual feedback from the limb and was accompanied by a significant decrease in the final accuracy… CONTINUE READING
