Medical Definition of Decerebrate state

1. A peculiar neurologic condition elicited in vertebrates as a consequence of the elimination of brain function by transecting the brainstem or interrupting function by other techniques. Clinically, brain damage can result in neurological signs resembling those of a decerebrate animal. The state consists of exaggerated postures, grossly abnormal reflexes, convulsions, and extreme muscular rigidity and spasticity. (12 Dec 1998)
