The rate and the amplitude of the involuntary movement were increased by emotional stress and produced gait disturbances. Segment 2. Needle EMG recording from rectus abdominis muscle: arrhythmic brief discharges lasting more than 100 msec. Horizontal calibration, 100 msec; vertical calibration, 200 V. Segment 3. Needle EMG recording from rectus abdominis muscle: high-frequency discharges of the same motor unit following the myoclonic activity. Horizontal calibration, 100 msec; vertical calibration, 50 V. This video presentation has been abbreviated. The full version will appear on theMovementDisorders DVD Supplement, which is issued bi-annually.|
