OBJECTIVE The cause or the physiological role of déjà vu (DV) in healthy people is unknown. The pathophysiology of DV-type epileptic aura is also unresolved. Here we describe a 22-year-old woman treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the left internal globus pallidus for hemidystonia. At certain stimulation settings, DBS elicited reproducible episodes of DV. METHODS Neuropsychological tests and single-photon-emission computed tomography (SPECT) were performed during DBS-evoked DV and… Expand
Persistent déjà vu associated with hyperperfusion in the entorhinal cortex
TLDR
Analysis with three-dimensional co-registration of SPECT and MRI revealed that the hyperperfused area during the persistent déjà vu was in the entorhinal cortex of the left temporal lobe. Expand
Unveiling the mystery of déjà vu: The structural anatomy of déjà vu
TLDR
A structural correlate of DV in healthy individuals for the first time is demonstrated and it is hypothesized 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. Expand
Unveiling the mystery of dejavu: The structural anatomy of dejavu
Dejavu (DV) is a widespread, fascinating and mysterious human experience. It occurs both in health and in disease, notably as an aura of temporal lobe epilepsy. This feeling of inappropriateExpand
92 Subjective Paroxysmal Nonepileptic Symptoms
TLDR
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. Expand
Déjà vu and prescience in a case of severe episodic amnesia following bilateral hippocampal lesions
TLDR
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. Expand
Electrical engram: how deep brain stimulation affects memory
TLDR
A new perspective on how DBS may ameliorate memory dysfunction is suggested: it may enhance normal electrophysiological patterns underlying long-term memory processes within the medial temporal lobe. Expand
Recognition Without Identification, Erroneous Familiarity, and Déjà Vu
TLDR
The need for more experimentation and a more cautious interpretation of research findings is suggested, particularly as many techniques being used to explore déjà vu are in the early stages of development. Expand
An iterative two-threshold analysis for single-subject functional MRI of the human brain
TLDR
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. Expand

Digging into Déjà Vu
Abstract The deja vu experience has piqued the interest of philosophers and physicians for over 150 years, and has recently begun to connect to research on fundamental cognitive mechanisms. FollowingExpand

The Behavioral Complications of Pallidal Stimulation: A Case Report
TLDR
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. Expand
Déjà vu in neurology
  • E. Wild
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of Neurology
  • 2005
TLDR
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. Expand
Anatomical origin of déjà vu and vivid 'memories' in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
TLDR
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%. Expand
Cortical stimulation study of the role of rhinal cortex in déjà vu and reminiscence of memories
TLDR
This study strongly suggests that experiential symptoms are largely dependent upon functional modification of the physiology of the rhinal cortices. Expand
Dystonia, clinical lateralization, and regional blood flow changes in temporal lobe seizures
TLDR
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. Expand
Epileptic activity influences the speech organization in medial temporal lobe epilepsy.
TLDR
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. Expand
Familial mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (FMTLE) : a clinical and genetic study of 15 Italian families.
TLDR
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. Expand
The localizing value of auras in partial seizures
TLDR
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. Expand
Human EEG gamma oscillations in neuropsychiatric disorders
TLDR
A hypothesis of a gamma axis of these disorders mainly based on the significance of gamma oscillations for memory matching is formulated, probably reflecting both cortical excitation and perceptual distortions such as déjà vu phenomena frequently observed in epilepsy. Expand
Cognitive assessment for clinicians
  • C. Kipps, J. Hodges
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry

TLDR
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. Expand
