This book reflects debates and results which have developed since the introduction of an international system of classifications in epileptology. The creation of such a system was initiated, in the sixties, mainly for practical reasons: growing international exchange had revealed that divergence of terminology in epilepsy had become important enough to prove a serious obstacle to sensible discussions. The Bethel-Cleveland symposia, which was at the origin of this book, aim to bring the excellence of advanced inter-disciplinary and controversial workshops to a larger public. The book concentrates on a selection of topics where progress has been made, where controversies are open or where discussion needs to be stimulated.The ictal EEG discharge was confirmed to involve electrode contacts over the SMA in all except two patients. No seizure ... Seizures mainly occurred in sleep, or shortly after awakening. ... There were diminished fine motor speed and manual dexterity bilaterally, with some indication of greater involvement of the left hand.
