Özet

Background and objective: Akathisia is characterized by restlessness and crawling sensations similar to restless legs syndrome (RLS). Long latency flexor reflex (LLFR) which has helped to advance RLS pathophysiology has never been investigated in alcathisia. Due to the clinical commonalities of akathisia and RLS, we investigated the behavior of LLFR in patients with akathisia aiming to understand pathophysiology of akathisia.
