Abstract

We have found, in the EEG of a patient with fragile-X-syndrome, spikes evoked by tapping of the right hand. Somatosensory evoked potentials from the median nerves showed abnormally high amplitude. One cousin of the patient had spike-wave and polyspike-and-wave activity in the EEG. These aspects, which are typically associated with idiopathic forms of epilepsy, confirm the epileptological importance of the fragile-X model.
