AMANCIO, Edson J.; ZYMBERG, Samuel T. and PIRES, Mara F. Chiari. Temporal lobe epilepsy and aura with happiness and pleasure: report of two cases and literature revision. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1994, vol.52, n.2, pp.252-259. ISSN 0004-282X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1994000200018.
The authors present two cases of temporal lobe epilepsy with happiness and pleasure during the seizure. Discussing the rarity of these clinical findings, the concept of epileptic aura is historically reviewed with special attention to Dostoievski's epilepsy and its descriptions by the medical literature.
