We studied the execution of self-initiated (SI) and externally-triggered (ET) rapid sequential arm movements in normal subjects (n = 7) and patients with generalised dystonia (n = 8) involving the upper limbs. We obtained 3Dkinematic measurements by the ELITE- system (BTS). Reaction time (RT) and movement time (MT) for each submovement of the sequences were recorded and statistically analysed (ANOVA, p
