Muscle co-activity tuning in Parkinsonian hand movement: disease-specific changes at behavioral and cerebral level

We investigated simple directional hand movements based on different degrees of muscle co-activity, at behavioral and cerebral level in healthy subjects and Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. We compared "singular" movements, dominated by the activity of one agonist muscle, to "composite" movements, requiring conjoint activity of multiple muscles, in a… (More)
