Visual Sensitivity and Epilepsy: A Proposed Terminology and Classification for Clinical and EEG Phenomenology
This poster presents a poster presented at the 2016 European Congress of Neuroscience entitled “Neuroscience and Epilepsia: Foundations of Neuroscience and Psychiatry, 2nd Ed.” in Strasbourg, France.
Recurrent microdeletions at 15q11.2 and 16p13.11 predispose to idiopathic generalized epilepsies.
The present results indicate an involvement of micro deletions at 15q11.2 and 16p13.11 in epileptogenesis and strengthen the evidence that recurrent microdeletions in this cohort confer a pleiotropic susceptibility effect to a broad range of neuropsychiatric disorders.
Eyelid myoclonia with absences (Jeavons syndrome): A well‐defined idiopathic generalized epilepsy syndrome or a spectrum of photosensitive conditions?
When strict criteria are applied to the diagnosis, EMA appears to be a distinctive condition that could be considered a myoclonic epilept syndrome, with myoclonia limited to the eyelids, rather than an epileptic syndrome with absences.
Clinical utility of EEG in diagnosing and monitoring epilepsy in adults
