Abstract

These results provide a quantitative assessment of the kinematic and electromyographic patterns of global synkineses and their correlates with clinical observations. Within the limits of the experimental results presented in this study, it is suggested that global synkineses result from contralateral overflow of the voluntary command to hyperexcitable motoneuron pools.
