Epilepsia inducida… por escuchar a Mariah Carey
Me pasa un compañero del curro este estudio del departamento de Neurología de un hospital japonés (negritas mías): A case of musicogenic epilepsy induced by listening to American pop music
(…) Since 19, she had had complex partial seizures lasting for about 20 seconds which was easily evoked by listening to an American pops particularly “Dreamlover” song by Mariah Carey. Brian MRI and interictal 99mTc HMPAO-SPECT showed no abnormalities. In the ictal EEG recording, three minutes after listening to the song, seizure activities were recorded from the right temporal region with 11Hz rhythmic epileptiform activities over the right temporal region and subsequent delta activities over the right hemisphere.
Yo ya decía que escuchar a la Carey no podía ser bueno para la salud… pero es que ahora ya hay pruebas médicas.
