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-i...

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

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 semiologic subgroups can be identified and whether these relate to anatomic organization.

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)

The frontal lobe and aggression.
Frontal lesions often lead to psychosocial problems. It is not surprising that frontal lobe dysfunctions have been proposed to underlie antisocial behaviour in individuals without apparent lesions. However, physical aggression and violence have never

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

Diagnosing frontal lobe epilepsy in the ED.
Frontal lobe seizures are a common form of epilepsy. It has a variable presentation and can often be missed in the emergency department (ED). Missing this diagnosis can lead to a delay in treatment and poor outcome for cognitive function. We hereby p

Historical evolution of the frontal lobe syndrome.
The function of the frontal lobes and the related frontal lobe syndrome have not been described in detail until relatively late in history. Slowly, the combination of knowledge from animal models, the detailed examination of symptoms after traumatic

Criminal Responsibility of the Frontal Lobe Syndrome.
Beynin birçok bölgesinde olduğu gibi frontal lobdaki hasarlarda da nörolojik defisit ve/veya psikiyatrik bulgular gözlenebilir. Frontal lob sendromu (FLS), prefrontal bölgenin çeşitli sebeplerle hasarlanması sonucu oluşur. Prefrontal bölge hasarların

Frontal lobe neurology and the creative mind.
Concepts from cognitive neuroscience strongly suggest that the prefrontal cortex (PFC) plays a crucial role in the cognitive functions necessary for creative thinking. Functional imaging studies have repeatedly demonstrated the involvement of PFC in
