- autonomic aura
- A term used to denote a type of *aura that manifests itself as an autonomic alteration such as palpitations or 'hot flashes', without any objective proof of an autonomic disturbance. Pathophys-iologically, autonomic aurae are associated primarily with focal epileptic seizures affecting auto-nomic centres in the CNS. Etiologically, they are associated primarily with paroxysmal neurological disorders such as epilepsy and migraine.ReferencesLüders, H., Acharya, J., Baumgartner, C., Banbadis, S., Bleasel, A., Burgess, R., Dinner, D.S., Ebner, A., Foldvary, N., Geller, E., Hamer, H., Holthausen, H., Kotagal, P., Morris, H., Meencke, H.J., Noachtar, S., Rosenow, F., Sakamotot, A., Steinhoff, B.J., Tuxhorn, I., Wyllie, E.
