The book is the first comprehensive description of the clinical neurophysiology of movement disorders. While movement disorders is a rapidly growing field, and clinical neurophysiology can be helpful, only single articles or selective or brief reviews have so far appeared. The book, as all books in the handbook series, is arranged with a set of detailed chapters on technique and a separate set of chapters on disorders. An international team of authors has been selected to provide the most expert descriptions.
Section I. Overview.
1. Movement disorders: overview (M. Hallett).
Section II. Techniques.
2. Electromyography (M. Hallett). 3. EEG (MEG)/EMG correlation (H. Shibasaki, T. Nagamine). 4. Electrocorticography in motor control and movement disorders (A. Ikeda). 5. Somatosensory evoked responses (F. Mauguière). 6. Coherence, cortico-cortical (C. Gerloff, C. Braun, M. Hallett). 7. Coherence, cortico-muscular (T. Mima, M. Hallett, H. Shibasaki). 8.
