Is there a condition which causes one hand to want to mirror the 
movements of the other?  i.e., While using a screw driver, the off 
hand will want to twist in the mirror direction.

This is NOT a request for a diagnosis.  I've just been curious about 
this for a while.  I'd appreciate any ideas.

Thanks!
