Professor Dr Dirk Dressler has produced a new publication about dystonia. ‘This publication is focussed on the historical aspects of dystonia. Over many years we have collected historical material on dystonia. It was amazing to see how – over the centuries – physicians and scientist, but also writers and visual artists have dealt with dystonia’, said Professor Dressler. The material was published with the help of Christian Riederer a specialist in publishing of historical material. ‘This publication is the product of a long-term project of IAB – Interdisciplinary Working Group on Movement Disorders. Parts of it were shown as special exhibitions at several international dystonia congresses. Here, we received a lot of valuable input and had many interesting discussions all improving our project,’ said Dressler.
The publication is available free of charge from IAB – Interdisciplinary Working Group on Movement Disorders, Brahmsallee 21, D-20144 Hamburg, Germany.
