...Elan D. Louis Background: Essential tremor (ET) is among the most prevalent neurological diseases. Age of onset, a key variable in neuroepidemiological and genetic research, is chiefly assessed by self-report rather than medical record review; the latter may be of little use. As a researcher, one...
