Joon Soo Lee, Jae Hyun Park, Chang Jun Coe
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(6):769-774.   Published online June 15, 1998
Purpose : This study was performed to correlate clinical behaviours with either a temporal or frontal site of origin and then to identify behaviours that might have a significant practical value in differentiating a temporal from a frontal focus and thus reduce the need for invasive monitoring. Methods : We analysed 129 seizures that occured during video-EEG monitoring in 13 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy(TLE)...
