Abstract

In summary, we conclude that ERS is an epileptic disorder. With proper investigation, especially the use of MEG, it is possible to distinguish patients with this disorder from those with purely behavioral problems. MST is an ideal procedure for those patients with this disorder who are refractory to drug therapy, as it can be performed in eloquent cortex and in both hemispheres.
