10 second video showing Dyskinesia demonstrated by a Patient with Parkinson’s Disease.

Dyskinesia refers to a category of movement disorders that are characterized by involuntary muscle movements, including movements similar to tics or chorea and diminished voluntary movements. Dyskinesia can be anything from a slight tremor of the hands to an uncontrollable movement of the upper body or lower extremities. 

When we wake our brains are “refreshed.” But so often I find the emotional state – particularly my level of motivation – I had before sleeping was better than the clean slate. It’s important to have some sort of memento that can jolt you, to some degree, back into that favored state come morning.

Looking at this, I think of Dr. Claus, of Harvard, of that colleague she described who “just had a third child, ran a 10k this morning and has a JD, MD and PhD.” The busy, beaming highlights of society who seize every morning. Somehow it is more affecting than a portrait of a cherished historical figure – the vividness of actually having met this person.
