Neuropsychological Qualification of Mental Development Characteristics of Children with Non-Epileptic Paroxysmal Conditions in Anamnesis

1076

Abstract

The article deals with the research results of mental development specificity among children with certain non-epileptic paroxysmal conditions in the past medical history. Participants of the research were 107 children from 6 to 10 years old and their parents. Clinical, biographical and experimental psychological methods were used. The empirical study has showed that affect-respiratory attacks combine with the most pronounced mental functions disorders (including thinking and active attention) comparing to other non-epileptic paroxysmal conditions. Children with febrile spasms in anamnesis have disorders of certain mental functions (including thinking) with a low to medium degree and strong disorders of active attention. Vegetovisceral seizures don’t combine with thought disorders in children and are associated with a low degree disorder of active attention. Taking into consideration these findings it is possible to reveal the effective psychological ways for helping children with the pathology.
