OBJECTIVE To further describe the features, postulated pathophysiology, treatment, and outcome of seizures occurring while playing or watching video games (video game-related seizures (VGRS)). DESIGN We evaluated retrospectively 10 patients with VGRS seen by us and reviewed 25 reported cases. RESULTS The 35 patients ranged in age from 1 to 36 years(More)
The pulp of individual teeth of 17 normal adult volunteers was electrically stimulated via pairs of electrodes implanted into dentine. Computer-summated responses recorded from the surface of the head were composed of two concurrent sequences of events, one of which was seen maximally over midline areas and the other over the lower portions of the(More)
Twenty-seven patients with medically refractory paroxysmal disorders underwent EEG-video-audio (EVA) monitoring in an inpatient neurology-neurosurgery unit over 1-15 (mean 8.9) days. Fast visual review of all EEG records (5,784 h) and subsequent analysis of synchronized EVA patterns demonstrated a total of 208 partial epileptic seizures (ES) in 12(More)
Twelve individuals with medically refractory partial seizures had undergone EEG-video-audio (EVA) monitoring over 1-15 (mean 10.5) days. We selectively reexamined available 15-channel EEGs (video-cassettes) totaling 461 h and containing 253 EEG focal seizures. Computer analysis (CA) of these bipolar records was performed using a mimetic method of seizure(More)
We studied retrospectively the intraoperative preresection electrocorticograms (ECoGs) of 72 patients undergoing surgery for medically intractable, mostly complex partial, temporal lobe seizures (TLS). Quantification of interictal epileptiform discharges (EDs) detected visually at each electrode location in 2 min recording epochs included computations of ED(More)
A 61-year-old man became deaf after the second of two cerebral infarctions which successively involved the temporal and adjacent cortices. He remained completely deaf until death 27 months later. Click stimulation demonstrated normal short-latency potentials, middle-latency responses better developed to stimulation of the right than of the left ear, and(More)
We quantified retrospectively the interictal epileptiform discharges (EDs) detected visually in the electrocorticograms (ECoGs) of 42 patients undergoing successive stages of anterior temporal lobectomy for medically intractable temporal lobe seizures (TLS). Following first resection sparing the hippocampus (H) and the parahippocampal gyrus (PHG), EDs were(More)
The authors report a case in which midline myelotomy for the removal of a C4-T4 ependymoma was immediately followed by abolition of short-latency somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP's) in response to bilateral posterior tibial nerve (PTN) stimulation which proved irreversible intraoperatively. Subsequent intraoperative testing also revealed obliteration(More)
