Region of brain affected, i.e. An injury to the basal ganglia may cause tremor to the same extent that its impairment leads to idiopathic parkinson's disease; a cerebellar lesion from a stroke could also lead to a tremor that arises on certain movement, so-called intention tremor. 2. Weakness of muscle groups from a stroke could cause tremor. ...Read more
