Dichotic listening and complex partial seizures. Journal Article uri icon



  • This study reports on 24 patients with multiple symptoms of untreated complex partial seizures (CPSz) who performed poorly at baseline assessment on a brief dichotic word listening task and subsequently improved following successful anticonvulsant therapy directed at treating seizure symptoms. These preliminary findings suggest that, in the absence of macroscopic structural lesions, dynamic electrophysiological dysfunction may interfere with the processing and transmission of simultaneously presented auditory information.
