Temporal discrimination is assessed in the hospital laboratory; in unaffected relatives of multiplex adult-onset dystonia patients distance from the hospital is a barrier to data acquisition. We devised a portable headset method for visual temporal discrimination determination and our aim was to validate this portable tool against the traditional laboratory-based method in a group of patients and in a large cohort of healthy controls.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Columbia University Library/Information Service, Center for Digital Research and Scholarship||Journal:||Tremor and Other Hyperkinetic Movements||Volume:||4||Start page:||1||End page:||5||Copyright (published version):||2014 the Authors||Keywords:||Cervical dystonia; Temporal discrimination threshold; Headset||DOI:||10.7916/D8TD9VF6||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
