Unverricht-Lundborg disease (ictal EEG)

Frequent spontaneous jerks are seen following generalized bursts of spikes (red arrows), but these can also occur without EEG changes (black arrow). A generalized burst of polyspikes (blue arrow) during 0.5 Hz intermittent photic stimulation is elicited by eye closure rather than the flash. (Courtesy of Dr Stewart G.
