    Approximately 5 million people in America are affected by essential tremors (ET), which are classified as a type of benign movement disorder.

    Voluntary finger-nose movements of the arm were analysed in six patients undergoing stereotaxic nucleus ventralis intermedius thalamotomy for relief of severe Parkinsonian tremor. In all cases thalamotomy acutely abolished tremor in the contralateral arm. In the early postoperative phase, ataxia...
