Metabolic changes in occipital lobe epilepsy with automatisms.

Some studies suggest that the pattern of glucose hypometabolism relates not only to the ictal-onset zone but also reflects seizure propagation. We inv...

Unusual ictal foreign language automatisms in temporal lobe epilepsy.
The distinct brain regions could be specifically involved in different languages and the differences in brain activation depending on the language proficiency and on the age of language acquisition. Speech disturbances are observed in the majority of

Mirror focus in a patient with intractable occipital lobe epilepsy.
Mirror focus is one of the evidence of progression in epilepsy, and also has practical points for curative resective epilepsy surgery. The mirror foci are related to the kindling phenomena that occur through interhemispheric callosal or commissural c

Prevalence of resistant occipital lobe epilepsy associated with celiac disease in children.
Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic, inflammatory autoimmune disorder caused by intolerance to ingested gluten. Increased frequency of CD has been reported in occipital lobe epilepsy. The aim of the present study is to investigate the frequency of CD am

The cognitive profile of occipital lobe epilepsy and the selective association of left temporal lobe hypometabolism with verbal memory impairment.
We investigated the cognitive profile of structural occipital lobe epilepsy (OLE) and whether verbal memory impairment is selectively associated with left temporal lobe hypometabolism on [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET)

Structural changes in the temporal lobe and piriform cortex in frontal lobe epilepsy.
Neuronal networks involved in seizure generation, maintenance and spread of epileptic activity comprise cortico-subcortical circuits. Although epileptic foci vary in location across focal epilepsy syndromes, there is evidence for common structures in

Alterations of the occipital lobe in schizophrenia.
The relationship of the occipital lobe of the brain with schizophrenia is not commonly studied; however, this topic is considered an essential subject matter among clinicians and scientists. We conducted this systematic review to elaborate the relati

Morphological changes after radiosurgery for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.
To review our experience with morphological developments during the long-term follow-up of patients treated by Gamma Knife radiosurgery for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.
