Glasgow Coma Scale

I am trying to locate locate a book, article, or a person who
can describe the pathophysiology of decerebrate posturing 
(abnormal extension) in the head injured patient.  After much 
searching, I have found references for decorticate posturing 
(abnormal flexion) and how this posturing relates to increased ICP, 
but can find nothing for decerebrate posturing.  

I am an instructor in Emergency Medical Technology and this is a
frequently asked question.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.
