    movement disorders, such as Parkinson disease (PD), tremor, tics and dystonia, are common conditions. the A range of conditions, both neurological and non-neurological, can mimic various movement disorders, and it is vital not to miss these lookalikes. BACKGROUND: Movement disorders are a group of neurological motor disturbances manifested by either paucity or slowness of movement, such as seen in Parkinson's disease, or by abnormal involuntary movements, called hyperkinesias, which include tremor, dystonia, chorea, tics, .

    In summary, Movement Disorders in Neurology and Neuropsychiatry, 2nd Edition, provides a comprehensive understanding of movement disorders in both neurology and neuropsychiatry. I would recommend this book for neurologists and psychiatrists whose clinical practice encompasses patients with involuntary by: 1. The book is divided into sections on Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, dystonia, tremor, paroxysmal movement disorders, ataxia, myoclonus, restless legs syndrome, drug-induced movement disorders, multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy/corticobasal degeneration, and .

Solutions to the major riddles in movement disorders are appearing at a breathtaking pace: 1) loss-of-function mutations in PRRT2, which encodes a cell surface protein expressed in neurons, have been found in many patients with paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesias; 2) mutations in CIZ1, which encodes a protein involved in cell-cycle control at the G1-S checkpoint, have been identified in a small.
