Abstract

The authors have studied the position with regard to evaluation of the specific afferent tracts (arthrogoniosthesis)(126 subjects) and by actively resetting passively preset angular positions of the controlateral limb (24 subjects), in healthy subjects, patients suffering from generalized and hemisomatic Parkinsonism and in patients with thalamic deficiency. The interesting results obtained from the examination of groups with a pathology of substantia nigra and basal ganglia compared with those of healthy subjecst are discussed, with a view to the 'cognitive' role played by the base nuclei in the more complex activity of synthesis and integration performed by the CNS. The authors also stress the necessity for the rehabilitation therapist to identify such troubles to remove any disability connected with psychomotor disorders.
