Cervical dystonia is a debilitating movement disorder characterised by involuntary muscle contractions in the neck. It is often accompanied by non-motor symptoms such as anxiety and depressive thoughts. Evelien Zoons investigates the pathophysiological mechanism underlying both types of symptoms, focusing specifically on the role of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.
