Abstract

The motor disability of the hemiparetic human subject is generated by a combination of muscular weakness, spasticity, and disturbed muscle selection. This paper will evaluate recent views about the origins of all three disturbances. We will argue that the disturbance in muscle selection is often the primary source of disability, and it is instrumental in mediating uncoordinated voluntary movements.
