In 3 decades 1550 patients showed 6/sec spike and wave complexes; 839 were chosen for computer-analyzed electroclinical correlations. Control groups (each 500) included patients (1) randomly selected from EEG files, (2) with normal EEGs, (3) with only slow wave abnormalities, and (4) with only spike abnormalities. In the experimental group more females and Caucasians were found with peak age distribution at 11--15 years. The major symptoms were seizures (53%), neurovegetative (51%) and… CONTINUE READING
