Example text

The ones associated with absence seizures are 3-per-second spike-andwave complexes that characteristically appear in all leads of the EEG simultaneously and disappear almost as suddenly at the end of the seizure (Fig. 2-3E). This finding led to the theoretic localization of a pacemaker for primary generalized seizure discharges in the thalamus or other deep gray structures (“centrencephalic seizures”), but such a center has not been verified anatomically or physiologically. The most pathologic finding of all is the replacement of the normal EEG pattern by “electrocerebral silence,” meaning that the electrical activity of the cortical mantle, recorded from the scalp, is absent.

Grossly disorganized background activity interrupted by repetitive “pseudoperiodic” discharges consisting of large, sharp waves from all leads about once per second. This pattern is characteristic of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. H. Advanced hepatic coma. Slow (about 2 per second) waves have replaced the normal activity in all leads. This record demonstrates the triphasic waves sometimes seen in this disorder (channel 1). I. Deep coma following cardiac arrest, showing electrocerebral silence. With the highest amplification, ECG and other artifacts may be seen, so that the record is not truly “flat” or isoelectric.

Gradient-echo sagittal image of the lumbar spine. Again, note the bright signal intensity of the CSF, creating a “myelographic” effect. The conus medullaris is well demonstrated, and individual nerve roots can be seen streaming inferiorly. F nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), is beginning to find routine use in the analysis of certain cerebral lesions. As currently utilized, a region of brain is chosen for analysis and MR frequency sequences are applied that detect signals from the relaxation of the electrochemical bonds of various constituents of brain tissue.
