19 Possible Causes for Occipital Slowing, Slowing - Theta Waves Unilaterally

  • Brain Concussion

    A brain concussion is a still incompletely defined syndrome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that causes a spectrum of symptoms without evident structural damage to the brain. A headache, cognitive deficits, emotional instability, sleep disturbances, and an overall change in mental state after trauma are highly[…][symptoma.com]

  • Migraine

    Strongly associated with the aura many migraineurs get, this slow wave of abnormal neuronal excitation usually begins in the occipital lobe at the back of the brain, and spreads[sciencemag.org]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Pediatric head injuries are common and may present with varying degrees of altered mental status in children. The approach to evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of further injury is important in achieving good health outcomes after a head injury. In this article, we review the pathophysiology,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    Her EEG showed slow background with continuous occipital small spikes and photosensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    […] or bilateral slowing in the delta or theta frequencies and focal sharp-wave activity. 14 Pathological findings of von Economo disease typically consist of a nonhemorrhagic[jamanetwork.com] The CSF glucose level is invariably normal, but oligoclonal band positivity has been reported. 21 An EEG during the acute phase of the illness often shows diffuse unilateral[jamanetwork.com]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Intracerebral hemorrhage is a rare event during pregnancy that can result in serious morbidity and mortality for the mother and infant. In this article, we describe a case involving a multiparous woman at 34 weeks gestation who presented with a 5-cm intracerebral bleed. Within 2 hours of presenting, she underwent[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Astrocytoma

    A 41-year-old man presented to us with left arm and leg weakness and mild word finding difficulties. His preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated abnormal T1 and T2 signal changes in the right temporal lobe and basal ganglia, indicative of possible glioma. An awake craniotomy for right temporal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningioma

    Meningioma refers to one oR many tumors that arise in very close contact to the meninges. The meninges are the membranous layers that cover the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms of meningioma are produced via different mechanisms. By irritating the underlying cortex, they can cause seizures. Headaches, weakness,[…][symptoma.com]
