Summary
Stereotyped movements (or sterotypy) is a term used to describe physical movements that are both aimless and repetitive. These behaviors cover a wide range of movements, from the steady, rhythmic body rocking of some developmentally disabled patients to the abrupt, transient movements of people with Tourette's syndrome. These movements often inhibit the physical and social functioning of patients and interfere with their care. Although noted in clinical observations for centuries, there is not yet a coherent theoretical or empirical understanding of these repetitive actions. The editors of this volume propose that these seemingly disparate conditions are actually conceptually related. This volume marks the beginning of researchers' efforts to integrate the field of stereotyped movements and provides an important bridge between behavioral and biomedical approaches
