The significance of déjà vu is widely recognised in the context of temporal lobe epilepsy, and enquiry about déjà vu is frequently made in the clinical assessment of patients with possible epilepsy. Déjà vu has also been associated with several psychiatric disorders. The historical context of current understanding of déjà vu is discussed. The literature reveals déjà vu to be a common phenomenon consistent with normality. Several authors have suggested the existence of a “pathological” form of d… Expand
Déjà Experiences in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
TLDR
A decoupled familiarity hypothesis is proposed, whereby déjà vu is produced by an erroneous feeling of familiarity which is not in keeping with current cognitive processing, and a parahippocampal dysfunction as the locus of déjaa vu experiences is converged on. Expand
Persistent déjà vu associated with temporal lobe epilepsy in an adolescent.
TLDR
An adolescent diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy who experienced persistent déjà vu at a young age is described, which presents an interesting finding, as it shows that young adolescents are able to describe in detail an aura such as déjaa vu that will allow physicians to identify the disorder much earlier. Expand
Déjà-vu in temporal lobe epilepsy: Metabolic pattern of cortical involvement in patients with normal brain MRI
TLDR
Findings argue for metabolic dysfunction of a medial-lateral temporal network in patients with déjà-vu and normal brain MRI and suggest that the feeling of familiarity during seizures greatly depends on alteration of the recognition memory system. Expand
Neuroimaging and cognitive changes during déjà vu
TLDR
The results confirm the role of mesiotemporal structures in the pathogenesis of DV and hypothesize that individual neuroanatomy and disturbances in gamma oscillations or in the dopaminergic system played a role in DBS-elicited DV in a 22-year-old woman treated with deep brain stimulation for hemidystonia.

Déjà vu and prescience in a case of severe episodic amnesia following bilateral hippocampal lesions
TLDR
This study shows that déjà vu can occur in cases of amnesia with massively damaged hippocampi and confirms that the perirhinal region is a core region for déjé vu, using a different approach from previous reports. Expand
Uncommon and/or bizarre features of dementia: part IV
It is well established that the clinical picture of dementias is not clinically homogeneous. For example, non-amnestic presentations of Alzheimer’s disease have been referred to as a typical variant.Expand
Neural Correlates of Deja Vu and Dissociation: The Roles of the Amygdala and Hippocampus in the Prevalence of Deja Vu Used as an Indicator for the Severity of Dissociation and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
The phenomenon of deja vu is one that is poorly understood while posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a complex diagnosis and presentation of symptoms. Both of these presentations are influencedExpand
Mortality in epilepsy and the influence of comorbid conditions and antiepileptic drugs
TLDR
Treatment with LTG in females was significantly associated with SUDEP, and it remains uncertain whether a causal relationship is present, butComorbid and underlying disorders were the main determinants of mortality in the epilepsy population. Expand
Migraine and Epilepsy: A Focus on Overlapping Clinical, Pathophysiological, Molecular, and Therapeutic Aspects
TLDR
The relationship between migraine and epilepsy is reviewed, focusing on clinical aspects and some recent pathophysiological and molecular studies. Expand

Déjà vu in psychiatric and neurosurgical patients.
TLDR
Reminiscence of this type being described by such nonscientists as Tennyson, Coleridge, and, as above, Dickens is mentioned. Expand
The déjà vu experience: remembrance of things past?
TLDR
The authors discuss the epidemiologic data, clinical features, and etiology of the phenomenon of déjà vu, and introduce an explanation based on the hologram as a mnestic model. Expand
Interictal 18FDG PET findings in temporal lobe epilepsy with déjà vu.
TLDR
It is suggested that extensive association cortical areas may be involved as part of the network that integrates this distinct experience in déjà vu and that temporal lobe dysfunction is necessary but not sufficient for the generation of DV. Expand
Anatomical origin of déjà vu and vivid 'memories' in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
TLDR
The mental phenomena observed in epileptic patients with electrodes stereotaxically implanted into different brain areas for seizure localization prior to surgical treatment is considered, finding that the amygdala was involved in 73% of cases, the anterior hippocampus in 83% and the temporal neocortex in 88%.

Mutations in LGI1 cause autosomal-dominant partial epilepsy with auditory features
TLDR
Discovery of LGI1 as a cause of ADPEAF suggests new avenues for research on pathogenic mechanisms of idiopathic epilepsies and shows that the expression pattern of mouse Lgi1 is predominantly neuronal and is consistent with the anatomic regions involved in temporal lobe epilepsy. Expand
Long‐Term Subdural Strip Electrocorticographic Monitoring of Ictal Déjà Vu
TLDR
Although ictal déjà vu localizes the epileptic focus to temporal lobe, this experiential phenomenon appears to lateralize to the hemisphere nondominant for handedness. Expand

Although psychiatric literature abounds in allusions to the phenomenon of ‘dEjA vu’, few communications were devoted to an analysis of this interesting psychological state. After a short review ofExpand
Mutations in the LGI1/Epitempin gene on 10q24 cause autosomal dominant lateral temporal epilepsy.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the LGI1 protein, which contains several leucine-rich repeats, is expressed ubiquitously in the neuronal cell compartment of the brain and provides evidence for genetic heterogeneity within this disorder. Expand
Familial temporal lobe epilepsy Autosomal dominant inheritance in a large pedigree from Southern Italy
TLDR
Genealogical study strongly supported autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance, as three unaffected individuals transmitted the disease in a large family recently identified in southern Italy. Expand
Experiential phenomena of temporal lobe epilepsy. Facts and hypotheses.

TLDR
Arguments are presented which indicate that experiential phenomena are positive expressions of temporal lobe and limbic function and do not result from its ictal paralysis, and the hypothesis assumes that temporal lobe epileptic discharge or electrical stimulation ofporal lobe structures can induce the elaboration of patterns of excitation and inhibition in widely distributed neuronal networks.
