This chapter covers five movement disorders: Parkinson's disease, dystonia, tic disorders, Huntington's disease, and essential tremor. These disorders demonstrate many of the most common challenges encountered in the epidemiologic investigation of movement disorders. Each section includes a description of the disease, followed by a review of descriptive studies (disease incidence, prevalence, and mortality studies), and discussion of genetic and environmental risk factors for the disorder. At the end of each section, directions for future studies are discussed.

Keywords:   movement disorders, Parkinson's disease, dystonia, tic disorders, Huntington's disease, essential tremor, incidence, prevalence, mortality, risk factors
