The authors studied 10 patients (mean age 15 years 6 months) with localized developmental gyral disorder detected by MRI. There were two groups of major malformations. Seven patients (group 1) had unilateral 'macrogyric-like' insulo-opercular changes, one of whom died early in life and had extensive microgyria. The six others had mental retardation and(More)
We studied 10 neurologically normal patients (8 females, 2 males) aged 8-30 years (mean 17 years) who had recurrent episodes if visually induced occipital seizures. Television and computer screens were the main triggers. Seizure onset occurred between the ages of 5 and 17 years (mean 11 years). All seizures were stimulus related and began with elementary(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effects of supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) on stress responses in mice subjected to an unpredictable chronic mild stress (UCMS) procedure. Stress-induced modifications in coat and aggressiveness were evaluated, and phospholipid PUFA profiles and monoamine levels were analyzed in the(More)
The authors studied 10 patients aged between six and 23 years (mean age 14 years 5 months) with magnetic resonance imaging, which detected bilateral 'macrogyric-like' maldevelopment of the insulo-opercular regions. The data confirm that biopercular gyral anomaly, associated with mental retardation, pseudobulbar palsy (cortical or central) and epilepsy,(More)
37 children presenting with West's syndrome were studied by computerized tomography scanning. An abnormality consisting of diffuse cerebral atrophy, predominating in the fronto-temporal region, was demonstrated in 30 cases. The abnormality was sometimes associated with calcification (tuberous sclerosis) or malformation (agenesis of the corpus callosum). The(More)
