PURPOSE Eyelid myoclonia (EM) is considered a seizure type and has been described in several epileptic conditions. Previous studies reported that EM are precipitated only by slow eye closure, but little is known about the characteristics of blinking in patients with EM seizures and differences in precipitation of EM by different kinds of eye closure. We(More)
PURPOSE Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a heterogeneous syndrome with seizures presenting typical fluctuation in diurnal cycle and relation with awakening. Few publications have approached clinical expressions of praxis induction (PI) in the nosology of JME as well as its impact on outcome. The aim of this study is to characterize PI as the only reflex(More)
This study aimed to analyze the impact of ictal dystonic posturing (DP) in postoperative seizure outcome and to assess the influence of DP in generalized tonic-clonic seizure (GTCS) occurrence during video-EEG monitoring of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy with mesial temporal sclerosis. The impact of DP on surgical outcome remains controversial.(More)
INTRODUCTION Video-EEG has been used to characterize genetic generalized epilepsies (GGE). For best performance, sleep recording, photic stimulation, hyperventilation, and neuropsychological protocols are added to the monitoring. However, risks and benefits of these video-EEG protocols are not well established. The aim of this study was to analyze the(More)
PURPOSE Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a heterogeneous syndrome in which seizures can be precipitated not only by non-specific factors, such as sleep deprivation and stress, but also by specific stimuli, such as photic stimuli, eye-closure, praxis, and language. The presence of these reflex traits may indicate the hyperexcitability of different(More)
