Mr. Smith, Catatonia Associated with Schizophrenia, Part 5

On a later day, the same man is sitting, making another strange gesture, almost as if conducting music while staring straight ahead. He cannot answer what he is doing and cannot follow a command to stop the movement. The interviewer is able to gently stop his movement without resistance. After a moment, the man becomes agitated, grimacing and groaning as if disturbed. Again, he makes no eye contact.
