The Neurology of spasticity

Spasticity is not automatically an upper motor neuron syndrome. Is this true? What about the converse? Where is the pathophysiology localized. What about the phenomena related to spasticity such as spasms, spastic dystonia, spastic cocontractions, pathological reflexes and so forth?

You find the answers to most (if not all) of these questions in a current Practical Neurology review that I highly recomend.
