This was once by means of lesions within the thalamus by way of Mullen in 1967, and via capsular lesions via Bertrand in 1970 and myself in 1971. within the macroscopic shape this used to be performed through component of the inter­ hemispheric cerebral connections through open operation by way of Vogel in 1969. This has been a big contribution to wisdom of the elemental mechanisms of the propagation of the epileptic discharge and to our figuring out of mind functionality yet i'd glance to stereotactic recommendations for the larger improvement capability. There are, after all, barriers. Bilateral lesions of powerful dimension are tough to accomplish with out negative effects, fairly in recognize of speech (notably dysarthria) and but are crucial if intractable epilepsy is to be con­ trolled in severity and frequency. elevated accuracy of goal siting and keep watch over of the dimensions of lesion should not the full resolution for inevi­ tably there are components the place very important neuronal circuits are very crowded. yet we must always no longer underestimate the contribution of surgical procedure. more and more the clinical remedy of epilepsy is below scrutiny.

On the right: repetitive potentials in the motor and cingulate areas, after stimulation of the frontobasal region, with increasing amplitude and distance between two potentials and later with group of muscle potential at rest (evoked petit mal activity). During voluntary contraction of the left biceps muscle there is no increase of the repetitive irritative process after the same stimulation. During voluntary contraction the irritative process does not appear after double stimulation either. Calibration: 100 msec, 100 microV for the deep electrodes, 100 microV for the muscle.
