Segment 1: phasic jaw movements disappear after therapy. The patient can voluntarily open her mouth and thrust her tongue. Segment 2: finger-to-nose testing demonstrates the presence of terminal dysmetria. Decomposition is not elicited by rapid alternating movements; however, slowness of the movements is evident. Heel-knee-shin testing shows mild dysmetria. Wide-based gait is observed; it becomes more marked step after step.|
