Inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity are the core symptoms of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Slowness, although less known, has been also recently reported in children with ADHD and may contribute to their learning difficulties. Slow response time and greater response time variability have been highlighted by several computerized(More)
INTRODUCTION In young children presenting drug-resistant epilepsy, the number of approved antiepileptic drugs is limited. Levetiracetam (LEV) is one of the most recent antiepileptic drugs (AED) introduced on the market and data on its effectiveness and tolerance in children are scarce. PATIENTS AND METHODS The objective of this retrospective study was to(More)
Among the epileptic syndromes occurring during infancy, which are mostly non-idiopathic and associated with a poor prognosis, benign infantile convulsions are characterized by a favourable evolution. This work aims to analyse and compare the clinical, EEG and outcome characteristics of familial benign infantile convulsions (FBIC) and non-familial benign(More)
Although infantile spasms can be caused by a variety of etiologies, the clinical features are stereotypical. The neuronal and vascular mechanisms that contribute to the emergence of infantile spasms are not well understood. We performed a multimodal study by simultaneously recording electroencephalogram and functional Near-infrared spectroscopy in an(More)
Infantile Spasms syndrome (ISs) is a characterized by epileptic spasms occurring in clusters with an onset in the first year of life. West syndrome represents a subset of ISs that associates spasms in clusters, a hypsarrhythmia EEG pattern and a developmental arrest or regression. Aetiology of ISs is widely heterogeneous including many genetic causes. Many(More)
Ischemic stroke is rare in children, most of which occur in the supratentorial brain, and infratentorial infarcts are very rare. Some clinical manifestations may be similar but others such as ataxia and cranial nerve palsy are more specific. Vertebral artery dissection is the most frequent cause of stroke in the vertebrobasilar territory, but the cause most(More)
