Recurrent sinus pauses: an atypical presentation of temporal lobe epilepsy.
Autonomic dysfunction related to seizures may give rise to a broad spectrum of cardiovascular abnormalities. Among these, ictal bradycardia and conduction delays may be encountered. Failure to recognize these abnormalities may contribute to sudden, u

Astrocyte uncoupling as a cause of human temporal lobe epilepsy.
Glial cells are now recognized as active communication partners in the central nervous system, and this new perspective has rekindled the question of their role in pathology. In the present study we analysed functional properties of astrocytes in hip

Temporal lobe epilepsy with amygdala enlargement: a subtype of temporal lobe epilepsy.
Some recent studies suggest that some imaging-negative temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) had significant amygdala enlargement (AE). Contradictory data were also reported in previous studies regarding the association between AE and TLE. The present study w

Insulinoma presenting as medically intractable temporal lobe epilepsy.
We describe a female insulinoma patient who presented with recurrent attacks of abnormal behavior, confusion, and seizure. Her interictal EEG showed epileptiform discharges on the left temporal area, therefore she was initially misdiagnosed as tempor
