  • ABSTRACT. Reflex seizures are evoked by a specific afferent stimulus or by activity of the patient and are divided into those characterized by generalized seizures and those principally manifested by focal seizures. Reflex epilepsies are syndromes in which all epileptic seizures are precipitated by sensory stimuli. Three categories of reflex seizures encountered clinically include pure reflex epilepsies, reflex seizures that occur in generalized or focal epilepsy syndromes that are also… CONTINUE READING
