Generalized Spike-Wave Discharges with Focal Onset in a Patient with Head Trauma and Diffuse Cerebral Lesions: A Case Report with EEG and Cranial MRI Findings
A case with absence seizures and EEGs with generalized 3 Hz spike-wave patterns that were preceded by a burst of spike-waves on the right parieto-occipital region, and the patient's lateralized and localized EEG findings were probably a representation of secondary bilateral synchrony (SBS).
Generalized epilepsy and classic spike-wave discharges with unilateral thalamic lesions.
2 patients with clinical presentations compatible with IGE but whose imaging studies revealed unilateral thalamic lesions are described to be recommended for magnetic resonance imaging studies, especially in refractory or atypical cases.
Subcortical epilepsy?
Evidence is examined suggesting the possibility for some of the subcortical structures to initiate seizures independently and the clinical implications of this.
High Dilution Effects: Physical and Biochemical Basis
This volume provides evidence in support of effects from control clinical studies, clinical records from veteran physicians, controlled experiments on animals and plants, and in vitro tests without any organisms to provide physical basis of high dilutions and their mechanism of action in organisms.
Symptomatic Narcolepsy and Generalized Seizures Following Surgery for Rathke’s Cleft Cyst
A woman with symptomatic narcolepsy is reported that developed after surgical removal of Rathke’s cleft cyst, which has never before been reported as a causative factor for symptomatic Narcoleptic.


Thalamocortical Relationships in Generalized Epilepsy with Bilaterally Synchronous Spike-and-Wave Discharge
One of the most dramatic patterns seen in clinical electroencephalography is generalized spike-and-wave (SW) discharge occurring during a clinical absence attack, which makes attractive the hypothesis that some central pacemaker located in the depths of the brain and projecting diffusely to the cortex was responsible for the origin of SW discharges.
Inhibitory and excitatory interhemispheric transfers between motor cortical areas in normal humans and patients with abnormalities of the corpus callosum.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex was performed in 10 normal subjects and 10 patients with radiographical abnormalities of the corpus callosum to investigate transcallosal influences on excitatory and inhibitory effects of motor cortex stimulation and to assess the potential diagnostic use of interhemispheric conduction studies.

"De novo" absence status of late onset is characterized by toxic or metabolic precipitating factors in middle-aged or elderly subjects with no previous history of epilepsy, most often of extra-temporal origin.
Topography of fibers in the human corpus callosum mediating interhemispheric inhibition between the motor cortices
The clinical findings suggest a role for TI in the performance of fast and complex hand motor tasks and characterize the system of callosal fibers activated by transcranial magnetic brain stimulation in more detail as a basis for a diagnostic application of this technique.
Cellular mechanisms of a synchronized oscillation in the thalamus.
Reduction of gamma-aminobutyric acidA (GABAA) receptor-mediated inhibition markedly enhanced GABAB inhibitory postsynaptic potentials in relay cells and subsequently generated a slowed and rhythmic population activity resembling that which occurs during an absence seizure.
[Syndromes involving rostral occlusion of the basilar artery: a preliminary study and proposal for a new clinical and neuro- radiological classification].
The proposed classification is an attempt to facilitate diagnosis by neuro-imaging and to group patients according to prognosis with characteristic clinical and radiological manifestations of basilar artery syndrome.
