Abstract

The psychomotor variant is a rare EEG pattern as a rhythmical activity at about 6 Hz that may occur in brief or longer runs, independently in the temporal areas during drowsy mental state. It was originally named by Gibbs and Gibbs because of its existence during the ictal or interictal period in patients with psychomotor seizures. We report a 14-year-old girl with juvenile absence epilepsy who showed the long runs of psychomotor variant followed by generalized ictal discharges.
