We present a case of acquired auditory-visual synesthesia and its neurophysiological investigation in a healthy 42-year-old woman. She started experiencing persistent positive and intermittent negative visual phenomena at age 37 followed by auditory-visual synesthesia. Her neurophysiological investigation included video-EEG, fMRI, and MEG. Auditory stimuli(More)
Treatment response in autoimmune epilepsy is variable. Achieving seizure reduction is often dependent on the specific neuronal antibody. 1,2 Glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GAD65)-associated epilepsy is among the most challenging of the autoimmune epilepsies to treat, often requiring multiple antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and aggressive immunotherapy to attain(More)
