CORRELATION OF AGGRESSION AND REGIONAL GLUCOSE METABOLISM RATES OF PATIENTS WITH EPILEPSY

Abstract


The article is dedicated to the investigation of the interconnection of and the regional glucose metabolism rates of the human brain in the patients with epilepsy. We have managed to reveal that epileptic patients in the quiet wake state demonstrate a rise of different types of aggression, which is mostly correlated with the glucose metabolism change in the left hemisphere of brain. With the rise of physical and verbal aggression, the increase of the left parietal lobe metabolic rate and the decrease of the left occipital cortex metabolic rate have been registered. Enhanced hostility, soreness, negativism, and suspicion are correlated with the decrease of the left prefrontal cortex glucose metabolism rate.
