BRADYKINESIA

n. a condition characterized by extreme slowness in movement. There is also a corresponding decrease in motor activity, thus, making physical responses slower and less spontaneous. Clinically observed in Parkinson's disease.

BRADYKINESIA: "Since kinesthetic movements are involved, bradykinesia leads to difficulty in executing movements which require successive steps."
