We have described our 25 years experience concerning 100 patients operated on for frontal epilepsy. Results show that 55% of patients are practically cured of their seizures and that 76% benefited from cortectomy (reduction of more than 75% of seizures). These results are the worst in the total series of St. Anne. Reasons for success and especially failure(More)
The electrical stimulation of a restricted part of area 24 in awake man elicits important behavioral changes. The present study is dealing with 83 epileptic patients whose brain activity was recorded in SEEG conditions, with a view to possible neurosurgery. In order to determine how seizures originate and propagate, 116 multileads electrodes (65 right, 51(More)
We describe ictal clinical manifestations of frontal lobe epileptic seizures in 22 patients. After examination of all ictal clinical data, 14 catergories of signs and symptoms were established. The validity of the ictal clinical data used was confirmed on the basis of 99 frontal lobe seizures recorded by tele-electroencephalogram or(More)
Three new cases of automatisms occurring during frontal lobe epileptic seizures are reported. If these cases are added to those already published and adequately described in the literature, a total of 12 cases is obtained. An attempt is made to elucidate the clinical characteristics of automatisms encountered during frontal lobe seizures. This kind of(More)
Some authors include somatomotor manifestations (SMM) among the clinical features of temporal lobe seizures in man; however, data are limited and conflicting. This study describes 101 seizures recorded during stereo-EEG explorations in 50 patients, selected on the basis of the demonstration of onset in temporal lobe structures (stereo-EEG) and the presence(More)
Tonic postural changes of the upper limb accompanied by epileptic parietal lobe discharges are not well known. The authors report 3 such cases. In the 3 patients, a total of 18 spontaneous seizures were recorded, 12 by telemetry, from either scalp electrodes or stereotactically implanted electrodes. Of these 18 seizures, 14 included tonic postural changes(More)
The literature only rarely mention the genital and sexual manifestations occurring in the course of partial seizures in man. The authors presently describe 42 seizures of this type recorded with E.E.G. and Stereo-E.E.G. techniques in 15 patients. The results of this study indicate that the genital and sexual paroxystic manifestations do have a specific(More)
The repair of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) is essential to maintain genomic integrity. In higher eukaryotes, DNA DSBs are predominantly repaired by non-homologous end joining (NHEJ), but DNA ends can also be joined by an alternative error-prone mechanism termed microhomology-mediated end joining (MMEJ). In MMEJ, the repair of DNA breaks is mediated by(More)
Retrospective analysis of the psychiatric diagnoses in a group of patients surgically relieved of medically intractable epilepsy tested the hypothesis that patients with left-sided temporal lobe epileptogenic lesions are at greater risk for the development of a so-called schizophrenic-like psychosis than are those with right-sided temporal lobe(More)
