    Holmes’ tremor is an unusual combination of rest, postural and kinetic tremor of the extremities. Medical treatment of this condition still remains unsatisfactory. The case of a 20-year-old female patient is reported who developed right-sided Holmes’ tremor 9 months after a...

    Lesion or degeneration of the cerebellum can profoundly impair adaptive control of reaching in humans. Computational models have proposed that internal models that help control movements form in the cerebellum and influence planned motor output through the cerebello-thalamo-cortical pathway....

    BACKGROUND: Unlike thalamic lesioning, thalamic stimulation is considered a reversible treatment for tremor. However, tremor in multiple sclerosis (MS) can sometimes permanently improve during thalamic stimulation. Such ‘permanent tremor reduction’ (PTR) has been attributed to limb...

    Symptomatic palatal tremor is potentially the result of a lesion in the triangle of Guillain-Mollaret (1931) and is associated with hypertrophic olivary degeneration (HOD) which has characteristic MR findings. The triangle is defined by dentate efferents ascending through the superior cerebellar...

    Wernekink commissure syndrome is a rare midbrain syndrome, which selectively destroys the Wernekink commissure involving the decussation of superior cerebellar peduncle in midbrain. This syndrome may display a clinical picture: bilateral cerebellar ataxia, eye movement disorders, and palatal...

    Tremor is one of the most frequent neurological signs; the diagnosis is mainly clinical. The most frequent tremor is essential tremor, which manifests itself as a postural and kinetic tremor. Tremor may occur not only in the hands, but also in the head and voice. Parkinsonian tremor is a tremor...

    A 55-year-old female is presented with transient cerebellar mutism caused by a well-circumscribed left pontine infarction due to postoperative basilar perforator occlusion. Although conventional T2 imaging shows a well-demarcated lesion confined to the pontine region, diffusion tensor imaging...

    Background Obsessive-compulsive disorder is one of the most disabling of all psychiatric illnesses. Despite available pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments about 10% of patients remain severely affected and are considered treatment-refractory. For some of these patients deep brain...
