Seven patients with pattern-sensitive epilepsy were examined repeatedly over a period of 4-12 months during which the dose of sodium valproate was adjusted. Patterns were presented in series in which the size of successive patterns was progressively increased until paroxysmal activity appeared, or until the largest pattern (radius 24 degrees visual angle) had been presented. As valproate dose increased, paroxysmal activity was less likely to occur. When it did occur it was less likely to… CONTINUE READING
