Fig. 5. Bilateral, "slow" myoclonic jerks of flexors of the arms, legs, and abdomen are accompanied, as in this example, by a paroxysmal generalized complex of slow waves. The onset of the muscle potentials in the flexor muscles precedes the onset of the EEG event. Shown are two bilateral myoclonic jerks. 5 s, hence the term "slow" myoclonus. Also shown are a series of three slight myoclonic contractions confined to the flexors of the right leg. Each of these is followed by a low-voltage slow transient appearing only at Cz (the midline central derivation).

Clinical seizures consisting of tonic extension of the left arm, fisting of both hands, and then apnea, followed by fast shallow respiration, occurred, as shown in the figure, not only in association with electrical seizure activity but also when no such activity was present. Diagnosis: asphyxia, hypoglycemia. A particular EEG pattern seen only in infants with depressed and undifferentiated EEGs consists of rhythmic trains of 8-10 Hz activity that appear chiefly on one side, usually in the centrotemporal region, persist for a few to as many as 40 s, and abruptly disappear (Fig.
