Neuro Test 2 FAMU

Stack #2542757

Inability to recognize weight Abarognosis
Is sensation experienced at a site remote from point of stimulation Allesthesia
Pain produced by a non-noxious stimulus Allodynia
Complete loss of pain sensitivity Analgesia
Inability to recognize the form and shape of objects by touch (synonym: tactile agnosia) Astereognosis
Inability to localize a sensation Atopognosia
Painful, burning sensations, usually along the distribution of a nerve Causalgia
Touch sensation experienced as pain Dysesthesia
Decreased sensitivity to pain Hypalgesia
Increased sensitivity to pain Hyperalgesia
Increased sensitivity to sensory stimuli Hyperesthesia
Decreased sensitivity to sensory stimuli Hypesthesia
Loss or absence of sensibility to vibration Pallanesthesia
Abnormal sensation such as numbness, prickling, or tingling, without apparent cause Paresthesia
Vascular lesion of the thalamus resulting in sensory disturbances and partial or complete paralysis of one side of the body, associated with severe, boring-type pain; sensory stimuli may produce and exaggerated, prolonged, or painful response Thalamic syndrome
Inability to perceive heat Thermanalgesia
Inability to perceive sensations of heat and cold Thermanesthesia
Increased sensitivity to temperature
Decreased temperature sensibility Thermhypesthesia
Loss of light touch sensibility Thigmanesthesia
Generalized muscle weakness Asthenia
Loss of ability to associated muscles together for complex mvmts Asynergia
Increased time required to initiate voluntary mvmts Delayed reaction time
Disorder of the motor component of speech articulation Dysarthria
Impaired ability to perform rapid alternating movements Dysdiadochokinesia
Inability to judge the distance or range of a movement Dysmetria
Movement performed in a sequences of component parts rather than as a single, smooth activity; decomposition Dyssynergia
Ataxic pattern; broad base of support; postural instability; high-guard position of UEs Gait disorders
Decrease in muscle tone Hypotonia
Overestimation of distance or range needed to accomplish a movement Hypermetria
Underestimation of distance or range needed to accomplish a movement Hypometria
Rhythmic, quick, oscillatory, back-and-forth movement of the eyes Nystagmus
Inability to half forceful mvmts after resistive stimulus removed; patient unable to stop sudden limb motion Rebound phenomenon
Involuntary oscillatory mvmt resulting from alternate contractions of opposing muscle groups Tremor
Oscillatory mvmt during voluntary motion; increases as the limb nears target; diminished or absent at rest Intention tremor (kinetic)
Exaggerated oscillatory mvmt of the body in standing posture or of a limb held against gravity Postural tremor (static)
Rhythmic oscillations of the head; axial involvement of the trunk Titubation
Inability to initiate mvmt; associated with fixed postures Akinesia
Slow, involuntary, writhing, twisting, wormlike mvmts; frequently greater involvement in distal UEs Athetosis
Decreased amplitude and velocity of voluntary mvmt Bradykinesia
Involuntary, rapid, irregular, jerky mvmts involving multiple joints; most apparent in UEs Chorea
Mvmt disorder with features of both chorea and athetosis Choreoathetosis
Sustained involuntary contractions of agonist and antagonist muscles Dystonia (dystonic mvmts)
Large-amplitude sudden violent, flailing motions of the arm and leg of one side of the body Hemiballismus
Abnormally increased muscle activity or movement Hyperkinesis
Decreased motor response especially to a specific stimulus Hypokinesis
Increased in muscle tone causing greater resistance to passive movement; greater in flexor muscles Rigidity
Rigidity that is uniform, constant resistance as limb is moved Lead-pipe
Rigidity that is a series of brief relaxations or "catches" as limb is passively moved Cogwheel
Involuntary, rhythmic, oscillatory mvmt observed at rest Tremor (resting)
