The article focuses on a study of a 25-year-old man who had experienced complex partial seizures since childhood. The patient has undergone magnetic resonance imaging which showed hyperintensity of the right hippocampus with volume loss and characteristics of mesial temporal sclerosis. Moreover, it explains that complex partial seizures are common in temporal lobe epilepsy and often associated with sclerosis, particularly the hippocampus.

    Photoparoxysmal response (PPR) is an EEG trait of spike and spike-wave discharges in response to photic stimulation that is closely linked to idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE). In our previous studies we showed that PPR is associated with functional alterations in the occipital and frontal...
