We observed unilateral dystonic posturing of an arm or leg in 41 complex partial seizures (CPS) from 18 patients. In all cases this was contralateral to the ictal discharge.

Subdural recordings of seven seizures showed ictal onset from the mesial basal temporal lobe. At the onset of… CONTINUE READING
