Abstract: Rare reflex epilepsies are a clinical curiosity but may also give insight into neurocognitive processes. The authors present a patient whose seizures were precipitated by drawing but not by writing. This dissociation complements previous reports on selective impairment of writing. EEG revealed a focus in the right frontal lobe with parietal spread. This is in accord with current cognitive and neural network models of drawing.
