Frontal lobe seizures: from clinical semiology to localization.

Frontal lobe seizures are difficult to characterize according to semiologic and electrical features. We wished to establish whether different semiolog...

Looking for complexity in quantitative semiology of frontal and temporal lobe seizures using neuroethology and graph theory.
Epileptic syndromes and seizures are the expression of complex brain systems. Because no analysis of complexity has been applied to epileptic seizure semiology, our goal was to apply neuroethology and graph analysis to the study of the complexity of

Altered synchrony and loss of consciousness during frontal lobe seizures.
Loss of consciousness (LOC) in frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) has been rarely specifically studied until now. In this study we evaluated the LOC in a population of patients with FLE and studied the relationship between changes in synchrony and degree of

Controllable yawning expressed as focal seizures of frontal lobe epilepsy.
Excessive yawning was described in some neurological conditions as part of periictal or ictal manifestations of epilepsy, most commonly temporal lobe. We present the first case of controllable yawning as a primary seizure semiology with dominant fron

Pitfalls in the diagnosis of new-onset frontal lobe seizures.
We reported the case of a young woman who received an antiepileptic drug after a first possible generalized tonic-clonic seizure with no clear inter-ictal epileptic paroxysms in the routine electroencephalogram. Her stereotypical movements decreased

Emergence of semiology in epileptic seizures.
Semiology, the manifestation of epilepsy, is dependent upon electrical activity produced by epileptic seizures that are organized within existing neural pathways. Clinical signs evolve as the epileptic discharge spreads in both time and space. Studyi

Frontal lobe tuberculoma.
Tuberculomas are usually infratentorial in children, and supratentorial lesions predominate in adults. We present a 4-year-old girl with multiple seizures, papilloedema and brisk reflexes. On investigation, she was found to have a large left parafalc

The Difference in Heart Rate Change between Temporal and Frontal Lobe Seizures during Peri-ictal Period.
Heart rate (HR) change is easily seen in seizures. Tachycardia is frequently seen in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), rather than extra temporal lobe epilepsy (XTLE). We report the difference in the HR pattern between TLE and frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE)

Lateralizing value of semiology in medial temporal lobe epilepsy.
Analysing the clinical characteristics of seizures constitutes a fundamental aspect of the presurgical evaluation of patients with medial temporal lobe epilepsy and unilateral hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS), the most frequent form of focal epilepsy

Pilomotor seizures: an autonomic semiology of limbic encephalitis?
Ictal piloerection is an infrequent seizure semiology that is commonly overlooked as an ictal epileptic manifestation. Piloerection is considered to be principally caused by temporal lobe activity although frontal and hypothalamic seizure origins hav
