The defeat of any part of the pyramidal path causes a violation of arbitrary movements, which can be complete or partial. Complete loss of voluntary movements is called paralysis, or plegia, partial-paresis. Paralysis can be central or peripheral. Central paralysis develops as a result of damage to the pyramidal pathway throughout the central motor neuron […]

Structures that form voluntary and involuntary movements

There are two main types of movements: involuntary and voluntary. Involuntary movements are carried out due to the segmental apparatus of the spinal cord and the brain stem. They proceed according to the type of a simple reflex act. Voluntary movements are acts of human motor behavior (praxia). They are carried out with the participation […]
