Essential tremor and tremor related publications play a vital role in providing access to both validated and controversial data. Publications of abstracts, full articles, research papers, newspaper and newsletter articles provide important news about what is occurring in the field of movement disorders. Tremor Action Network advocates knowledge of publications is power for a better understanding of living with essential tremor and tremor related neurological disorders.
Tremor and Other Hyperkinetic Movements (TOHM) is a fully open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes clinical and scientific papers on tremor and hyperkinetic movements. Because TOHM is open access, all articles are available in full text format online, free of charge. In contrast to other publications focusing on disorders of hypokinesia (i.e., mainly Parkinson’s disease), TOHM emphasizes the non-Parkinsonian movement disorders, giving center stage to clinical observations and research in this area. In doing so, the journal aims to provide an international platform for experts and specialists in the field of hyperkinetic movements. The Tremor Action Network sponsors publication scholarships for TOHM‘s submitting authors. The funds they provide cover the costs of publication, which allows authors without grant funding to publish their articles free of charge, ensuring their research makes an impact.
A Neurology patient’s best friend not letting sleeping dogs lie or shaking dogs shake
Hokuto Morita, neurology resident at Mayo Clinic, Rochester discusses dogs and neurologic disease. He focuses on the work of Emmanuel Mignot, who identified the narcolepsy gene in Dobermans that helped identify the gene problems in humans with narcolepsy. Dr. Morita addresses a head tremor study of Doberman Pinschers in Germany that “in some ways resemble aspects of essential tremor.”
“We live in a scientific age, yet we assume that knowledge of science is the prerogative of only a small number of human beings, isolated and priestlike in their laboratories. This is not true.” Rachel Carson
