Rhythmic theta activity maximally expressed in the parietobasal leads is a characteristic interictal EEG pattern in infants and children with primarily generalized "corticoreticular" seizures, including febrile convulsions. It is a strictly age-dependent electroencephalographic expression of a widespread genetic disposition to convulsions. If it coincides with photosensitivity, it leads to a considerable risk of spikes and waves. As epidemiological and family studies have shown, it is most… CONTINUE READING
