Movement disorders in 2014: Genetic advances spark a revolution in dystonia phenotyping

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Genetic revelations in 2014 are testing traditional classification systems for movement disorders, and our approach to clinical diagnostics. Mutations in dystonia-associated genes lead to a spectrum of disorders with different phenotypes, underscoring the need for stringent clinical phenotyping of patients with movement disorders, as well as next-generation sequencing approaches.
