The selective influence of rhythmic cortical versus cerebellar transcranial stimulation on human physiological tremor.
 

Author(s): Arpan R Mehta, John-Stuart Brittain, Peter Brown

Journal: J. Neurosci.. 2014 May;34(22):7501-8.

 

The influence of central neuronal oscillators on human physiological tremor is controversial. To address this, transcranial alternating current stimulation (TACS) was delivered at peak tremor frequency to 12 healthy volunteers in a 2 × 2 crossover study. Two sites were stimulated ...

Advances in clinical and molecular understanding of the FMR1 premutation and fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome.
 

Author(s): Randi Hagerman, Paul Hagerman

Journal: Lancet Neurol. 2013 Aug;12(8):786-98.

 

Fragile X syndrome, the most common heritable form of cognitive impairment, is caused by epigenetic silencing of the fragile X (FMR1) gene owing to large expansions (>200 repeats) of a non-coding CGG-repeat element. Smaller, so-called premutation expansions (55-200 repeats) can cause ...

Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS): pathology and mechanisms.
 

Author(s): Paul Hagerman

Journal: Acta Neuropathol.. 2013 Jul;126(1):1-19.

 

Since its discovery in 2001, our understanding of fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) has undergone a remarkable transformation. Initially characterized rather narrowly as an adult-onset movement disorder, the definition of FXTAS is broadening; moreover, the disorder ...

What is essential tremor?
 

Author(s): Rodger J Elble

Journal: Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep. 2013 Jun;13(6):353.

 

Classic essential tremor is a clinical syndrome of action tremor in the upper limbs (at least 95 % of patients) and less commonly the head, face/jaw, voice, tongue, trunk, and lower limbs, in the absence of other neurologic signs. However, the longstanding notion that essential tremor ...
