Early postictal electroencephalography and correlation with clinical findings in children with febrile seizures.
Electroencephalography (EEG) is frequently ordered for patients with febrile seizures despite its unclear diagnostic value. We evaluated the prevalence of abnormal EEGs, the association between clinical findings and abnormal EEGs, and the predictive

Continuous electroencephalography for seizures and status epilepticus.
To discuss the use of continuous video-electroencephalographic (cEEG) monitoring among critically ill children at risk for electrographic seizures and status epilepticus.

Early prediction of blonanserin response in Japanese patients with schizophrenia.
Blonanserin is a second-generation antipsychotic used for the treatment of schizophrenia in Japan and Korea. The present study aimed to examine early prediction of blonanserin in patients with schizophrenia.

[Seizures revealing phosphocalcic metabolism abnormalities].
Hypocalcemia due to hypoparathyroidism produces a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations, but overt symptoms may be sparse. One unusual presentation is onset or aggravation of epilepsy in adolescence revealing hypoparathyroidism. This situation ca

Cardiorespiratory abnormalities during epileptic seizures.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a leading cause of death in young and otherwise healthy patients with epilepsy, and sudden death is at least 20 times more common in epilepsy patients as compared to patients without epilepsy. A signific

Intractable epilepsy, hemispheric malformation, and generalized electroencephalography abnormalities.
We present a case of a young boy with a large hemispheric dysplasia, generalized EEG abnormalities and intractable epilepsy who achieved seizure freedom and markedly improved cognitive outcome after functional hemispherectomy.

Efficacy and tolerability of levetiracetam as adjunctive therapy in Japanese patients with uncontrolled partial-onset seizures.
The aim of this study was to confirm the efficacy and safety of adjunctive levetiracetam in adult Japanese patients with uncontrolled partial-onset seizures.

Decreased serotonin2C receptor responses in male patients with schizophrenia.
Serotonin (5-HT)2C receptors in brain affect psychosis, reward, substance abuse, anxiety, other behaviors, appetite, body temperature, and other physiological measures. They also have been implicated in antipsychotic drug efficacy and side effects. W

Aberrant neural responses to social rejection in patients with schizophrenia.
Patients with schizophrenia often show abnormal social interactions, which may explain their social exclusion behaviors. This study aimed to elucidate patients' brain responses to social rejection in an interactive situation. Fifteen patients with sc

White matter diffusion abnormalities in patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.
The purpose of this study was to conduct a preliminary investigation of the white matter characteristics in patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES). Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) data were collected at 3T in 16 patients with PNES and
