Forty one children (20 boys, 21 girls) aged 6-10.8 years (mean age 8.6 years) who were affected with idiopathic epilepsy underwent neuropsychological (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Bender test) and behavioural assessment (Personality Inventory for Children; this was also used in a matched control group). Further information was obtained by(More)
A study was conducted on seven children (five females and two males, aged 5.7-13.1 years) affected with partial epilepsy which was well controlled by therapy. A computer was connected on-line to a polygraph and during two EEG recordings, the subject had to react to the appearance of a colored rectangle on the display screen by pushing a key on the keyboard:(More)
Four children surviving severe hypoxic-ischemic brain damage showed subtotal destruction of the cerebral hemispheres, with partial preservation of some infratentorial and supratentorial brain structures. True multicystic encephalopathy features were identified in two cases on CT scanning. The other patients showed more pronounced brain tissue destruction,(More)
After having reported continuous localized EEG discharge during slow sleep (CLEDS) in six children with congenital encephalopathy, we observed a similar EEG picture in six children free from both neuropsychological and neuroradiological defects. They suffered from partial idiopathic epilepsy; five presented a familial disposition towards febrile seizures.(More)
We studied 12 children (8 female and 4 male) aged 2.2-14.3 years, whose computed tomographic (CT) examination had shown evidence of malacic and/or porencephalic outcomes of early vascular brain infarction. Topographic spectral electroencephalographic (EEG) analysis was performed in all patients in the awake state. The following spectral EEG variables were(More)
Work experience The scientific work continuously carried out at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology – Sapienza University of Rome focused on the study of peptidergic transmission and its interactions with classical neurotransmitter systems in the central and peripheral regulation of various functions (nociceptive response, body temperature,(More)
