What Your Right Hand Does When Left Hand Mimics?

Additional research experimented on mice recommends that this particular gene plays a major role in motor network cross-over. This is a principle factor in the conduction of brain signals, as it permits the right part of the brain to regulate the left part of the human body and vice versa. This study has been printed in an American Journal. An uncommon disease, congenital mirror movement is spread from one age group to another age group by dominant inheritance.  The individuals who are affected by this lose the capability to carry out dissimilar movements with separate hands.

When their one hand moves in one direction, their opposite hand is forced to mimic the similar movement, even if the individual does not desire so. So individuals affected with this disease are absolutely incompetent of bimanual motor activities like playing piano. This phenomenon has been analyzed on kids, but normally cleared up instantly before the age of 10 years. But if the individuals are diagnosed with this disorder, the disease initiates in early childhood and remains unaltered all through the life. In the year 2010, the research scientists from Quebec observed the genes from the associates of a large Canadian family and found a gene which is responsible for this disease. In the DCC gene, the researchers found mutations.

Using an approach which pooled conventional genetic observation and absolute exome observation, the researchers displayed that RAD 51 gene was responsible for CMM disease in a large French Family. They pooled these findings using the similar techniques on German Family which was affected with same disorder. In humans the left part of the brain is regulated by the motor mechanism of the right part of the human body and vice-versa. The discovery unlocks novel area of research into the development of the motor system.
