We studied the dynamic changes in the amplitude of scalp electroencephalographic (EEG) oscillations to self-paced simple index finger abduction movements in patients with writer's cramp and compared them with those of normal aged-matched controls. The changes in EEG oscillations were measured in predefined frequency bands (8-10, 10-12, 12-20, and 20-30 Hz) by using the event-related desynchronization technique. Movements of the affected and unaffected hand in patients with writer's cramp showed… CONTINUE READING
