Abstract:
A young woman wearing scanty clothing is shown sitting in a wheelchair. Her body shakes and trembles. She tries to touch her nose but cannot. She attempts to hold her hands out in front of her, but they will not stay still and continue to tremble when draped over a stick. Her arms flap up and down when she tries to hold them out at her sides. Every physical task is performed with trembling and uncoordinated movements. Her eyeball is shown moving jerkily. She is photographed walking out-of-doors with the help of an attendant. Her gait is unsteady. Her attempt to stand on one foot causes the free foot to thrash up and down. She cannot hold her head still.
