Quotes

...The surprise came after a few months when the woman began her poetic streak, writing about topics ranging from housework to "the act of versifying itself.” "Compulsive writing, or hypergraphia, is a well-known, if uncommon, symptom of temporal lobe epilepsy. It affects about 10 percent of patients, though the writing is often disjointed and difficult to read. Our new poet wrote clearly, with both jokes and rhymes," it said. Also, the woman became more interested in wordplay, including finding word patterns in license plates. But this did not last long, as her streak began to end after six months. — Joel Locsin/TJD, GMA News"
"FIG. 4 is a graph comparing the effect on EEG power of 5 mg/kg diazepam to those of 1 mg/kg diazepam combined with low-dose ketamine (10 mg/kg) and valproate (30 mg/kg) using a standard rat model of SE (see, e g. Lopez-Meraz et al. Distinct caspase pathways mediate necrosis and apoptosis in subpopulations of hippocampal neurons after status epilepticus. Epilepsia 2010; 51(Suppl 3):56-60). Triple therapy was more effective than higher-dose monotherapy in reducing EEG power (p<0.001), a measure of seizure severity, from a comparable baseline."
