Myoclonus

Myoclonus in Angelman Syndrome is a published paper by the AS Clinic at Massachusetts General Hospital. Myoclonic seizures are the jerky movements or tremors that some people with AS experience and frequency appears to increase with age. In 2017, records of 185 people with AS were reviewed for reports of myoclonic seizures. They studied genotypes, age of onset and what, if any, medication was effective in minimizing myoclonic seizures.
