Abstract

Objective: Startle reflex is a generalized defense reaction after unexpected auditory, visual, or tactile stimuli. Auditory startle reflex (ASR) and startle reflex to somatosensory inputs (SSS) have never been studied in generalized dystonia. Here, we aimed to study the characteristics and changes of ASR and SSS in this group.
