Persistent déjà vu associated with hyperperfusion in the entorhinal cortex

Unveiling the mystery of dejavu: The structural anatomy of dejavu

It is hypothesis that the observed local gray matter decrease in subjects experiencing DV reflects an alteration of hippocampal function and postnatal neurogenesis with resulting changes of volume in remote brain regions.

92 Subjective Paroxysmal Nonepileptic Symptoms

This chapter focuses on how to best differentiate between the common imitators of subjective simple partial events from actual seizures by discussing common or important paroxysmal mimics as noted in >Table 92-2.

Insights into déjà vu: Associations between the frequency of experience and amplitudes of low‐frequency oscillations in resting‐state functional magnetic resonance imaging

It is suggested that the erroneous feeling of familiarity arises from a temporary disruption of cortico‐subcortical circuitry together with the upregulation of cortical excitability in the DV.

Déjà vu and prescience in a case of severe episodic amnesia following bilateral hippocampal lesions

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.

An iterative two-threshold analysis for single-subject functional MRI of the human brain

The iterative TT (iTT) method is compared with the original TT method, as well as other established voxel-based and cluster-based thresholding approaches and spatial mixture modelling and outperforms all conventional approaches tested except for SMM in a few cases.

Precognition as a form of prospection: A review of the evidence.

Prospection, the act of attempting to foresee one’s future, is generally assumed to be based on conscious and nonconscious inferences from past experiences and anticipation of future possibilities.



The Behavioral Complications of Pallidal Stimulation: A Case Report

Cardinal PD symptoms and dyskinesia improved with DBS, and neuropsychological testing found improvements in visuospatial measures associated with left DBS and in verbal memory with right DBS when compared to the patient's preoperative baseline, support a role for the pallidum in cognition and affective regulation.

Déjà vu in neurology

Several neuroanatomical and psychological models of the déjà vu experience are highlighted, implicating the perceptual, mnemonic and affective regions of the lateral temporal cortex, hippocampus and amygdala in the genesis of déjaa vu.

Anatomical origin of déjà vu and vivid 'memories' in human temporal lobe epilepsy.

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%.

Cortical stimulation study of the role of rhinal cortex in déjà vu and reminiscence of memories

This study strongly suggests that experiential symptoms are largely dependent upon functional modification of the physiology of the rhinal cortices.

Dystonia, clinical lateralization, and regional blood flow changes in temporal lobe seizures

It is found that ictal dystonia was associated with a relative increase in perfusion of the basal ganglia opposite the dystonic limb, and light increases in cortical blood flow on the side opposite the direction of version were associated with head-turning, irrespective of the side of seizure focus.

Epileptic activity influences the speech organization in medial temporal lobe epilepsy.

In patients with focal epilepsy, not only the known factors, but also the epileptic activity itself, i.e. interictal discharges and seizure spread, may influence speech reorganization, and the findings suggest that not only structural elements but also functional factors have an effect on the language organization of the brain.

Familial mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (FMTLE) : a clinical and genetic study of 15 Italian families.

FMTLE may be a more common than expected condition, clinically and genetically heterogeneous, and some of the reported families, grouped on the basis of a specific aura, may represent an interesting subgroup on whom to focus future linkage studies.

The localizing value of auras in partial seizures

The type of aura, when elicited by careful history-taking, provides as useful localizing, but often not lateralizing, information as the EEG and modern high-technology procedures such as CT, MRI, and PET.

Cognitive assessment for clinicians

The purpose of the cognitive examination is to separate out those patients in whom a firm clinical diagnosis can be made, from those who require further and more detailed investigation, and maintains a symptom oriented approach.
