Movement disorders have long been an interest of the Editor of Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment (Brimblecombe and Pinder 1972). Movement disorders can manifest as slowness or poverty of movement (hypokinesias) or as abnormal involuntary movements (hyperkinesias). Two of the commonest hyperkinesias are essential tremor, which has been described in a previous issue of the journal (Uccellini et al 2006), and restless legs syndrome (RLS), which occupies much of the current issue and was also reviewed in a recent issue (Byrne et al 2006).
