by Petr Kanovsky (Editor), Kailash P. Bhatia (Editor), Raymond L. Rosales (Editor)

The current concept of dystonic movement connects the abnormal function of somatosensory pathways and somatosensory analyzers with the dystonic performance of motor action, which is based on the abnormality of sensorimotor integration. This concept is reflected not only in idiopathic dystonia, but also in secondary and symptomatic dystonias. This bookwill give a comprehensive account ofthe history of the terms dystonia and dystonic, the physiology of dystonic movement and the genetics and clinical appearance of primary and secondary dystonias. Taking into considerationlatest research findings, Dystonia and Dystonic Syndromes offers an in-depth discussion of current treatment options available for dystonia, including pharmacotherapy, surgery and neurorehabilitation. Therefore, it serves as a valuable reference for practitioners in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and neuroradiology as well as for neuroscientists.
