Myoclonus in spinal dysraphism

Authors


Abstract

Two cases of segmental myoclonus occurring in association with spinal dysraphism are described. In one, myoclonus of paralysed legs arose below a region of spinal cord lacking any normal function, illustrating the capacity of the isolated spinal cord to generate and maintain rhythmic activity independent of supraspinal influences. © 2003 Movement Disorder Society
