Neurology

TREMORS

1. Static tremors occur at rest, or when the head and extremities are held in a fixed position.

2. Kinetic tremors occur during voluntary movement.

3. Action tremors persist unchanged throughout voluntary movement and disappear at rest.

4. Intention tremors occur with target-directed movement and worsen as the movement unfolds.
