Refractory gelastic seizure is one of the most common clinical manifestations in patients with hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) and HH is usually regarded as the epileptogenic focus. A young female patient with a small HH and refractory seizures is reported here. However, both the seizure semiology and results of electroencephalogram monitoring indicated the(More)
A study of the propagation of electroencephalogram (EEG) activity before seizure by means of the Directed Transfer Function (DTF) is presented. The DTF method is a multi-channel parametric method of analysis based on an autoregressive model, and is capable of supplying such information as the direction, spectra and dynamics of the propagation of EEG(More)
Gelastic seizure is an uncommon type of seizure which is characterized by recurrent bouts of unprovoked and stereotyped laughter. It is commonly observed in patients with hypothalamic hamartoma, while its association with other cerebral lesions is rare. The patient was a 15-year-old right-handed male. His chief complaints were recurrent onsets of laughter(More)
In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of Goldbanded jobfish (Perciformes: Lutjanidae: Etelinae: Pristipomoides multidens) was sequenced using long-PCR amplification (Accession No.: KF430626). The mitochondrial genome is highly homologous to those of other teleosts. Consensus tree based on phylogeny analysis of nucleotide sequences using the(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is a recently developed imaging technique that can directly visualize and quantitatively measure tissue elasticity. PURPOSE To evaluate the safety of brain MRE on human subjects. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 20 healthy volunteers. MRE sequence scan (drive signal not applied to external force(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the clinical features of hippocampal lesions. METHODS the clinical data of 21 patients with hippocampal lesions, 15 males and 6 females, aged 19 (8-42), with a duration of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), underwent resection of the anterior temporal lobe, amygdaloid nucleus, and hippocampus. The resected hippocampal tissues were(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the application of intracranial electrodes (IE) for temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) surgery and assess the clinical utility of intracranial video electroencephalography (IVEEG). METHODS The clinical data of 60 TLE patients undergoing implantation of IE were reviewed retrospectively. Cortical subdural strip, grids and depth electrodes(More)
BACKGROUND The findings of previous studies remain controversial on the optimal management required for effective seizure control after surgical excision of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). We evaluated the efficacy of additional bipolar electrocoagulation on the electrically positive cortex guided by intraoperative electrocorticography (ECoG) for(More)
