PURPOSE To investigate neuronal dysfunction in the thalami of patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) by using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). METHODS We performed single-voxel proton MRS over the right and the left thalami of 10 consecutive patients (five women) with JME (mean age, 31.6 years) and 10 age-matched healthy volunteers (five men). All patients had seizure onset in late childhood-teenage, normal neurologic examination, typical EEG of JME, and normal high… CONTINUE READING
