Visual evoked responses were obtained in 47 Parkinsonian patients and 26 age-matched controls. The stimulation to binocular and uniocular latency of the major positive peak was longer in the Parkinsonian patients and its amplitude was smaller than in the control subjects. There was a large interocular difference suggesting that at least part of the delay(More)
An 18-year-old male student had a 3-month history of partial seizures with cognitive symptomatology, with occasional secondary generalization. After 3 weeks of treatment with clobazam 20 mg a day, the patient developed, in association with his seizures, a neologistic jargon dysphasia but with loss of inflection, volume, and rhythm of speech, presumably as a(More)
An experiment is described which compared visual evoked potential (VEP) amplitudes and latencies in normal subjects and migraine patients. Several VEP abnormalities were found: at vertex and to a lesser extent at temporal sites, P100-N120 amplitudes were larger in patients; at vertex and temporal sites N120 amplitudes were larger in patients; at temporal(More)
Patients with classical migraine whose auras included paraesthesiae or numbness in the hands have been reviewed. In 55 of 111 patients the symptoms were on the same side of the body as the headache and in only 20 on the opposite side to the headache. In the remaining 36 patients one or other was incompletely lateralised. Five right handed patients described(More)
A double-blind cross-over trial between pheneturide and phenytoin in ninety-four outpatients with epilepsy is described. There was no significant difference between the frequency of seizures in the two groups. The difficulties in comparing two anticonvulsants of similar efficacy are discussed particularly in relation to ethical problems, the selection of(More)
An hypothesis that migraine is the experience of a protective vascular response to cerebral information overload has been explored to a limited extent by examining the association between laterality of the attack and verbal and spatial performances under standard symptom-free conditions. The study was restricted to individuals with unilateral symptoms(More)
Forty patients with migraine who were attending a specialist clinic were interviewed with the Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia--Lifetime version. Sixteen (40%) had a history of major depression which was of endogenous type in 15, according to Research Diagnostic Criteria. The tyramine test, a previously established trait marker for(More)
