Interestingly, primary cerebellar changes were observed in cortical myoclonus patients (already described by Hunt [51]), and more recently in patients with celiac disease [52] and FCMTE [50]. In the absence of structural changes, functional cortical changes may exist, for instance as a result of a channelopathy. Channelopathies are recognized in the inherited epilepsy syndromes. It has, however, been suggested that cerebellar 12/24/2011 6:24:53 AM Pathophysiology and Molecular Pathology of Tremor, Myoclonus, and Chorea disease, leading to decreased cortical inhibition via the cerebello-thalamo-cortical loop, is the principal cause of cortical myoclonus.

DYT6 dystonia is caused by mutations in the gene that encodes THAP (thanatos- associated protein) domain-containing apoptosis-associated protein 1 (THAP1] [6, 7]. In addition to the identified mutations, a rare non-coding substitution in THAP1 might increase the risk of dystonia [6]. The THAP1 protein is a sequence-specific DNA-binding factor which regulates cell proliferation and plays roles in cell survival and/or apoptosis.
