Intention Myoclonus (Action Myoclonus) includes Postanoxic Myoclonus and Postencephalitic Myoclonus; Arrhythmic Myoclonus (stimulus-sensitive myoclonus) includes: Hereditary Essential Myoclonus (paramyoclonus multiplex), Hyperexplexia (Essential Startle Disease), Opsoclonus (Infantile Myoclonic Encephalopathy, Polymyoclonia Familial Arrhythmic Myoclonus), Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (Dyssynergia Cerebellaris Myoclonia);

Rhythmical Myoclonus includes (Segmental Myoclonus), Nocturnal Myoclonus, Palatal Myoclonus, and Respiratory Myoclonus; [NORD]
