抄録

In order to elucidate the role of psychic tension in the precipitation of epileptic seizures, a precise analysis of provoked paroxysmal activities during EEG activation by means of speaking, reading, writing, calculation, and constructive acts was made. This examination, which we call “neuropsychological EEG activation” (NPA), was carried out in a total of 455 patients with epilepsy. In 25 patients out of them, paroxysmal activities, most often associated with myoclonic seizures, were apparently induced by NPA. The factors which were related to the provocation of paroxysmal activities and habitual seizures in these 25 patients were: (1) each performance of NPA (16 patients); (2) psychic tension alone (3 paticnts); (3) each performance of NPA as well as psychic tension (6 patients).
