Movement Disorders

  • Eduardo C. Gonzalez

The movement disorders are a group of neurologic diseases characterized by varying degrees of degeneration in the basal ganglia, cerebellum, neostriatum, and higher brain stem. Likewise, these disorders manifest various effects on the neurotransmitter balance including dopamine, acetylcholine, and norepinephrine. It is thought that it is the neurotransmitter disturbances that account for variations in the clinical features of the movement disorders.
