Myoclonus

Myoclonus is defined as sudden lightening jerks. Little is understood about this disorder. The most common cause is post-hypoxic myoclonus as the neurological result of cardiac arrest. Myoclonus could be caused by a variety of disorders. Therapeutic treatment is often inadequate. Recently an animal model has been developed to study this disorder.
