    Tremor with onset at age <2 years follows a benign course, with many patients requiring no treatment and outgrowing the disorder.

  3. Bibliometric Analysis of Neurology Articles Published in General Medicine Journals

    Compared with other specialties, neurology-based articles are published more frequently in general medicine journals.

  4. Implementation and evaluation of a curriculum on the assessment and treatment of disruptive behaviour disorders

    Pre–post-evaluation of the curriculum showed improved knowledge in participants.
