If the limb is partially denervated, the electromyogram shows reduced numbers of motor unit potentials (often of large size) as well as fasciculations and fibrillations. The location of the lesion (in nerves, spinal roots, or spinal cord) can usually be determined by the pattern of weakness, by the associated neurologic symptoms and signs, and by special tests—magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine, examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and electrical studies of nerve and muscle.

The static postural activities of the former are indispensable to the voluntary movements of the latter. The close association of these two systems also becomes evident in the course of neurologic disease. Cerebral lesions that involve the corticospinal tracts predominantly result not only in a contralateral paralysis of volitional movements but also in a fixed posture or attitude in which the arm is flexed and the leg extended (predilection type of Wernicke-Mann or hemiplegic dystonia of Denny-Brown).
