History of movement disorders as a neurological specialty: Part 14 of the MDS-sponsored History of Movement Disorders exhibit, Barcelona, June 2000


  • As part of the International Congress of the Movement Disorder Society in Barcelona, June 2000, the society sponsored an exhibit devoted to History of Movement Disorders. With the help of numerous members of the MDS and loans from libraries, private collections, and laboratories, the authors developed a series of explanatory panels, accompanied by photographs, diagrams and original artifacts that traced the early history of movement disorders from several perspectives. These materials have been adapted for publication in Movement Disorders and are presented in an ongoing series.
