Abstract

We describe a patient who had a violent automatism that occurred during a partial complex seizure. The initial spike wave activity was recorded from nasopharyngeal leads that were lost as the patient began his vigorous, violent activity. This activity included nondirected, automatic, stereotyped behavior with physical assaults on objects in his path.
