We studied the effects of higher mental activity on the EEG, i.e., neuropsychological EEG activation (NPA), in patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). Thirty patients with JME underwent a conventional EEG recording and EEG recording during performance of a battery of twelve neuropsychological tasks, which involved decision making, reading,(More)
In the study described here we attempted to evaluate the personality profiles of 25 patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) at the time of diagnosis, before treatment, and to explore a potential relationship between behavioral aspects and clinical outcome.
