Increased activation of frontal areas during arm movement in idiopathic torsion dystonia.

Abstract:

Most positron emission tomography (PET) studies of regional cerebral function in idiopathic torsion dystonia (ITD) have failed to show abnormalities, but there have been few studies of the changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) that occur during movement in dystonia. Using PET, we have studied six patients with familial generalized ITD both at rest and while moving a joystick with the right hand. The patterns of CBF change obtained were compared with those in six age-matched control s...
