Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) with praxis-induced seizures consists of a complex group of generalized epileptic syndromes. The aim of the study was identifying the association between self-perception trigger factors and myoclonic jerks. Twenty-two patients were submitted to a protocol of neuropsychological activation (NPA) during video-electroencephalography (video-EEG) methods for 4-6 hours. A questionnaire was applied regarding patients' self-perception of factors that precipitate of seizures comparing with the video-EEG findings. In psychology and the cognitive sciences, perception is the process of getting, interpreting, selecting, and organizing sensory information. It includes the collection of data from sense organs through to the interpretation made by the brain. ... Perception is a lot more than just "information coming in".
