Theta-burst-induced seizures reported by Lenoir et al.: Anterior or posterior insular seizures?
Lenoir et al. [1] recently reported two cases of epileptic seizures as adverse events of continuous theta burst stimulation. They targeted the dorsal-posterior operculo-insular cortex in order to modulate somatosensory sensations in healthy volunteers, including those mediated by thermo-nociceptive input received by this region. Although the principal objective of this report is to call for attention for the potential risk of this procedure, the authors may have been unaware of important information which provide insights into the insular subregion activated by their stimulation technique. ... read more
