Cortical myoclonus: an insight into the organization of normal movement in man.

Abstract:

The study of cortical myoclonus affords an insight into both the spatiotemporal organization of the human sensorimotor cortex and the nature of descending motor signals. Cortical activity tends to be rhythmic, whether in response to peripheral stimulation or intended movement. This activity leads to a series of descending motor discharges and a train of electromyographic bursts, with a frequency of around 50 Hz. Each descending motor discharge consists of a brief series of synchronous volleys...
