17 Possible Causes for Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Occipital Right, Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Temporal Bilaterally

  • Epilepsy

    PURPOSE: Exogenous estrogens might lead to seizure worsening in women with epilepsy (WWE) by lowering the seizure threshold and inducing glucuronidation in women taking lamotrigine. Assisted reproduction techniques are increasingly used and often require estrogenic and estrogen raising hormone therapy. We aimed at[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: The pathogenesis of benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME) remains unknown, although cerebellar pathologic changes and brain hyperexcitability have been reported. We used resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the functional connectivity between the cerebellum and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is a condition characterized by recurrent seizures (epilepsy). This condition begins in childhood or adolescence, usually between ages 12 and 18, and lasts into adulthood.

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGEs) constitute one third of all epilepsies. They are genetically determined and affect otherwise normal people of both sexes and all races. IGEs manifest with typical absences, myoclonic jerks, and generalized tonic-clonic seizures, alone or in varying combinations and severity.[…][epilepsy.com]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    Myoclonic-astatic epilepsy, also known as Doose syndrome, is a type of idiopathic childhood epilepsy presenting with astatic as well as myoclonic component. It presents in children with previously normal development but can cause some degree of mental disturbance later in life. Myoclonic-astatic epilepsy (MAE) consists[…][symptoma.com]

  • Organic Brain Syndrome

    An organic brain syndrome ( OBS ), also known as an organic brain disease/disorder ( OBD ), an organic mental syndrome ( OMS ), or an organic mental disorder ( OMD ), is a syndrome or disorder of mental function whose cause is alleged to be known as organic ( physiologic ) rather than purely of the mind.

  • Encephalopathy

Altered mental state is the major symptom of encephalopathy. In addition, affected individuals will also experience confusion,[…][symptoma.com]
