Face perception is subtended by a large set of areas in the human ventral occipito-temporal cortex. However, the role of these areas and their importance for face recognition remain largely unclear. Here we report a case of transient selective impairment in face recognition (prosopagnosia) induced by focal electrical intracerebral stimulation of the right(More)
OBJECTIVES Type 1 schizencephaly (SZ) is a cerebral malformation characterised by a cleft lined and surrounded by a polymicrogyric cortex, extending from the pial region to the peri-ventricular heterotopia. Our purpose was to combine and compare dipole source imaging technique and Stereo-EEG (SEEG) technique in determining the irritative and epileptogenic(More)
OBJECT The aim of this study was to compare IQ and memory outcomes at the 1-year follow-up in patients with medically refractory mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) due to hippocampal sclerosis. All patients were treated using a corticoamygdalohippocampectomy (CAH) or a selective amygdalohippocampectomy (SelAH). METHODS The data of 256 patients who(More)
We report here the results of the first survey on epilepsy surgery activity in France. Data from a questionnaire sent to 17 centers practicing epilepsy surgery were analyzed. All centers responded; however, all items were not completely documented. Over 50 years, more than 5000 patients have been operated on for drug-resistant epilepsy and more than 3000(More)
PURPOSE To define the relationship between the epileptogenic zone and the polymicrogyric area using intracranial electroencephalography (EEG) recordings in patients with structural epilepsy associated with regional infrasylvian polymicrogyria (PMG). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical charts, scalp, and intracranial video-EEG recordings,(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is known to affect postural control, especially in situations needing a change in balance strategy or when a concurrent task is simultaneously performed. However, few studies assessing postural control in patients with PD included homogeneous population in late stage of the disease. Thus, this study aimed to analyse postural control(More)
OBJECT The aim of this study was to evaluate, using diffusion tensor tractography, the white matter fibers crossing the hippocampus and the amygdala, and to perform a volumetric analysis and an anatomical study of the connections of these 2 structures. As a second step, the authors studied the white matter tracts crossing a virtual volume of resection(More)
According to neuropsychological evidence, a distributed network of regions of the ventral visual pathway - from the lateral occipital cortex to the temporal pole - supports face recognition. However, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have generally confined ventral face-selective areas to the posterior section of the occipito-temporal(More)
In 1996, Civit et al. (Neurosurgery, 38:955–961, 1996) reported a series of eight patients whose aneurysms were clipped after previous embolization with coils. This paper highlighted the safety of this surgery in second line, with a low complication rate and a favorable outcome. The two major surgical indications were either after deliberate partial(More)
OBJECTIVE Delineation of the epileptogenic zone (EZ) in refractory epilepsy related to malformations of cortical development (MCDs) often requires intracranial electroencephalography (EEG) recordings, especially in cases of negative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or discordant MRI and video-EEG findings. It is therefore crucial to promote the development(More)
