Myoclonus is a neurological movement disorder characterized by sudden, involuntary contractions of skeletal muscles; Based on the various symptoms, there are three types of Myoclonus: Intention Myoclonus, Rhythmical Myoclonus, and Arrhythmic Myoclonus; 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]-----------
