368 Possible Causes for Generalized slowing seen on EEG

  • Dementia

    The effectiveness of the 5 U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved pharmacologic therapies for dementias in achieving clinically relevant improvements is unclear. To review the evidence for the effectiveness of cholinesterase inhibitors (donepezil, galantamine, rivastigmine, and tacrine) and the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pharyngitis

    Antibiotics are effective in the early stages, but recovery is generally slow.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Unfortunately, narrowing of the bronchi and obstruction of airflow may continue to progress even after smoking ceases, though the rate of progression generally slows.[britannica.com]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    Abstract Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a severe pediatric epilepsy syndrome characterized by mixed seizures, cognitive decline, and generalized slow ([ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a childhood epileptic encephalopathy characterized by an electroclinical triad of generalized slow spike wave (SSW) activity in the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Interictal EEG showed findings characteristic of LGS: generalized slow spike-wave complexes, multifocal sharp waves, generalized polyspikes and paroxysmal fast activity during[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Persistent Vegetative State

    EEG findings included normal, continuous generalized slowing, intermittent generalized slowing, background slowing, background suppression, alpha, generalized periodic pattern[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Limbic Encephalitis

    Electroencephalography showed focal or generalized slowing and/or epileptiform activity, maximal in the temporal regions, in all 22 patients tested.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ten (10/18) patients had temporal lobe epileptic activity with or without general slowing on EEG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electroencephalography usually showed non‐specific changes with generalized slowing, with focal sharp waves especially in the temporal regions in some cases; Case 10 had left‐sided[doi.org]

  • Vegetative State

    EEG findings included normal, continuous generalized slowing, intermittent generalized slowing, background slowing, background suppression, alpha, generalized periodic pattern[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    The EEG showed irregular background activity with generalized slow waves which were not suppressed with diazepam injection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fatal Familial Insomnia

    The observed changes were likely due to the fact that different thalamic locations generate slow-wave sleep versus REM sleep; slow-wave sleep is generated in the limbic portion[journals.lww.com] The EEG study performed in July 2006 showed generalized slowing with bilateral periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges.[dx.doi.org]

  • Hydrocephalus

    They may have a general slowing of movements or may complain that their feet feel "stuck."[aesculapusa.com] An individual with this type of hydrocephalus may have a general slowing of movements or may complain that his or her feet feel "stuck."[web.archive.org] An individual with this type of hydrocephalus may have a general slowing of movements or may complain that his or her feet feel “stuck.”[chasa.org]
