- Rationale: Visual assessment of structural MRI is, by definition, normal
in patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME), a major subsyndrome
of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. However, recent quantitative
MRI studies have shown structural abnormalities in frontal and thalamic
grey matter (GM) in JME. In the present study, we addressed the issue of
whether diffusion tensor MRI (DTI) can detect white matter abnormalities
in patients with JME. We also performed several neuropsychological
tests to evaluate frontal lobe dysfunctions in JME patients as compared to
