Aileen McGonigal

 

Here, I will present the case of a young male patient with MRI-negative focal pharmacoresistant epilepsy, who underwent stereoelectroencephalographic (SEEG) exploration. He presented predominantly nocturnal seizures with hyperkinetic behavior. A characteristic feature of his case was interictal psychiatric disturbance with impulsive behavior and hyperphagia. Electroclinical features will be discussed in the context of the spectrum of frontal lobe seizure semiology. I will also discuss possible ictal/interictal interactions within prefrontal systems, related to altered interictal behavioral control in his case.
