Initially labeled nocturnal hypnogenic, and later nocturnal paroxysmal dystonia (Lugaresi et al., 1986), the epileptic nature of these sleep-related events later became well established. The clinical boundaries of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (NFLE) have been refined by the Bologna school (Tinuper et al., 1990; Provini et al., 1999, 2000, 2002; Tinuper & Lugaresi, 2002; Tinuper et al… CONTINUE READING
