Postictal psychosis related regional cerebral hyperperfusion Postictal psychosis is a known complication of complex partial seizure in particular temporal lobe epilepsy. It usually runs a benign and self limiting course. A postictal phenomenon with focal cerebral hypofunc-tion (similar to Todd's palsy), rather than ongoing seizure activity, has been postulated. 1 2 Surface EEG is either normal or showing non-specific slow waves. 3 Hence, antipsychotic medications are prescribed instead of… 


Parietal lobe epilepsy
Ictal SPECT localization correlated with two main clinical seizure patterns: an anterior syndrome characterized by sensorimotor manifestations and a posterior Syndrome characterized by CPS of the psychoparetic type, helpful for localization of parietal seizures.
Postictal psychiatric events during prolonged video-electroencephalographic monitoring studies.
The findings suggest that monitoring studies increase the risk for postictal psychiatric events, which neurologists need to be familiar with, as they represent important morbidity associated with these studies.
Abnormal involuntary movements induced by subthalamic nucleus stimulation in parkinsonian patients
Investigation of chronic electrical subthalamic nucleus stimulation for alleviating parkinsonian symptoms found that electrical stimulation provoked AIMs and antiparkinsonian benefit occurred with different electical variables and different timing, the mechanisms responsible for these two effects could be distinct.
Subthalamic nucleus stimulation improves directly levodopa induced dyskinesias in Parkinson’s disease
This work reports on a patient who presented a marked improvement of levodopa induced dyskinesias without decreasing the daily dosage of Levodopa, which is a new and useful surgical method to improve parkinsonian disability.
Neurophysiological identification of the subthalamic nucleus in surgery for Parkinson's disease
These findings suggest that STN neuronal activity is elevated in Parkinson's disease, and electrical microstimulation of STN could produce tremor arrest but were and found to be useful for localization.
Reversal of experimental parkinsonism by lesions of the subthalamic nucleus.
The postulated role of excessive activity in the subthalamic nucleus in Parkinson's disease is supported by the effects of lesions evaluated in monkeys rendered parkinsonian by treatment with 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine.
Subthalamotomy in parkinsonian monkeys. Behavioural and biochemical analysis.
Results confirm and expand, at the cellular level, the paramount role of STN hyperactivity in the pathophysiology of parkinsonism and the therapeutic consequences for surgical treatment of Parkinson's disease are discussed.
Nitric oxide in acute ischaemic stroke: a target for neuroprotection
Stroke illness remains the single greatest cause of serious physical disability in western countries and is a major consumer of scarce medical resources. In the United Kingdom, it is estimated that
Expression of angiogenic factors and structural proteins in central nervous system vascular malformations.
Angiogenic growth factors are expressed in all types of vascular malformations of the central nervous system and the pattern of expression suggests diffuse activation of angiogenesis without specific relation to individual vessel types or recent clinical behavior.
