A polygraphic study performed on 184 patients with late post-traumatic encephalic syndromes has shown marked nervous reactivity disturbances. The disturbances, estimated by testing for the electrographic components of the orienting reflex elicited by a repetitive auditory stimulus and for their habituation, were expressed by alterations in the intensity,(More)
The present investigation was carried out as a further step in our attempt to establish the part played by various nervous structures and pathways in the orienting reflex and its habituation (Rogozea and Ungher 1965, 1966, 1968, Rogozea et al. 1969). We approached in this study the role played by the auditory and "associative" cortex. Experiments reported(More)
A polygraphic study on resistance to habituation of the somatic, autonomic and EEG components of the orienting reaction elicited by a repetitive auditory stimulus was performed in 29 patients with post-meningoencephalitic epilepsy and in 116 matched subjects in 3 control groups. The study showed a significantly higher resistance to habituation of the(More)
Aluminum-induced temporal lobe epilepsy in 24 cats showed marked interictal intensification of somatic and EEG components of the orienting reaction and increase in their resistance to habituation. The greatest disturbances of the orienting response were noted in cases of bitemporal foci, of foci situated in the allocortex (hippocampus and amygdala) and of(More)
A polygraphic study on resistance to habituation of the somatic, autonomic and EEG components of the orienting reaction elicited by a repetitive auditory stimulus was performed in 41 patients with epileptogenic cerebral tumours and in 128 matched subjects in three control groups. The study evidenced a significantly higher resistance to habituation of the(More)
