Positron emission tomography with O-15-labeled water was used to study at rest the neurophysiological effects of bilateral external globus pallidus (GPe) deep brain stimulation in patients with Huntington's disease (HD). Five patients were compared with a control group in the on and off states of the stimulator. External globus pallidus stimulation(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of refractory status epilepticus (RSE) remains largely empirical. Lacosamide (LCM) is a new anticonvulsant available in intravenous (IV) form, but its optimal dosing regimen for the treatment of RSE is unknown. We compared safety and efficacy of two loading doses: 200 and 400 mg. METHODS Prospective observational study of all(More)
Epileptic syndromes with continuous spikes and waves during sleep (CSWS) are characterized by an acute phase with the emergence of psychomotor deficits and CSWS activity and by a recovery phase in which patients' clinical condition improves together with the remission of CSWS activity. The pathophysiological mechanisms of how CSWS activity induces(More)
It is hypothesised that focal interictal epileptiform discharges (IED) may exert a deleterious effect on behaviour and cognition in children. This hypothesis is supported by the abnormally high prevalence of IED in several developmental disorders, like specific language impairment, and of cognitive and behavioural deficits in epileptic children after(More)
We studied online coupling between a reader's voice and a listener's cortical activity using a novel, ecologically valid continuous listening paradigm. Whole-scalp magnetoencephalographic (MEG) signals were recorded from 10 right-handed, native French-speaking listeners in four conditions: a female (Exp1f) and a male (Exp1m) reading the same text in French;(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of continuous electroencephalogram (cEEG) during the first 48 h following cardiac arrest (CA) in patients treated with targeted temperature management (TTM). METHODS We reviewed data from 92 comatose post-CA patients over a 6 year-period; cEEG recordings were performed during TTM and(More)
Previous studies investigating cerebral metabolic changes associated with continuous spike-waves during sleep (CSWS) compared the metabolism of children with CSWS with that of healthy adults, precluding any assessment in brain areas showing physiologic age-related metabolic changes. Here, we investigated the metabolic and connectivity changes characterizing(More)
PURPOSE Metabolic changes have been described in the nonepileptic temporal lobe of patients with unilateral mesiotemporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) associated with hippocampal sclerosis (HS). To better understand the functional correlate of this metabolic finding, we have sought to characterize brain regions in patients with MTLE that show correlation between(More)
Wide-neck bifurcation intracranial aneurysms (WNBA) with a branch incorporated in the aneurysm base remain difficult to treat by embolization. We aim to report our long-term follow-up of stent-assisted coiling (SAC) in this subgroup of patients. This study was approved by our local ethical committee. A retrospective review of our prospectively maintained(More)
