Neurotransmitters in the regulation of movements and in the development of spastic movement disorders

Full Text:


Much progress has been made in the understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms of motor control including a complex interaction of sensory, motor and cognitive functions. The identification and investigation of the functional role of the neurotransmitter systems that are involved in the regulation of motor functions offer new perspectives in interpreting the complex, inadequately clarified mechanisms of movement disorders and in developing approaches to their treatment. The organization of motor behavior, including the neurotransmitter anatomy of the so-called motor centers Р the cerebral structures involved in motor control, is extremely complex and requires further investigation.
