This is the third edition of a popular multiauthor volume addressing disorders of motor control and directed at neurologists practicing in this field. In the past 5 years, genes (and in some cases disease pathways) have been identified for pertinent diseases, including a number of dystonias and cerebellar degenerations, Wilson disease, and some forms of familial Parkinson disease. Investigative tools (eg, functional magnetic resonance imaging) and treatment modalities (eg, transplantation and deep brain stimulation) are continually evolving. For these reasons, this new and enlarged edition is justified.
