Characteristics[ edit ] In some cases hypergraphia can manifest with compulsive drawing. The patients they observed displayed extensively compulsive detailed writing, sometimes with literary creativity.
The patients kept diaries, which some used to meticulously document minute details of their everyday activities, write poetry, or create lists.
Case 1 of their study wrote lists of her relatives, her likes and dislikes, and the furniture in her apartment. Beside lists, the patient wrote poetry, often with a moral or philosophical undertone. She described an incident in which she wrote the lyrics of a song she learned when she was 17 several hundred times and another incident in which she felt the urge to write a word over and over again.
Another patient wrote aphorisms and certain sentences in repetition. Language capacity and mental status were normal for this patient, except for recorded right temporal spikes on electroencephalograms. This patient had right hemisphere epilepsy.
Functional MRI scans of other studies suggest that rhyming behavior is produced in the left hemisphere, but Mendez proposed that hyperactive electrical activity of the right hemisphere may induce a release of writing and rhyming abilities in the left hemisphere.
While some writers e. Alice Flaherty use their hypergraphia to help them write extensive papers and books, most patients do not write things of substance.
Flaherty defines hypergraphia, as a result of temporal lobe epilepsy, as a condition that "increase[s] idea generation, sometimes at the expense of quality. Grammar can be present, but the meaning of these thoughts is generally hard to grasp and the sentences are loose.
Therefore, it is difficult to say with absolute certainty that hypergraphia is a symptom of these psychiatric illnesses because creativity in patients with bipolar disorder, hypomania, or schizophrenia may manifest into something aside from writing.
However, other studies have shown significant accounts between hypergraphia and temporal lobe epilepsy  and chemical causes. Less than 10 percent of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy exhibit characteristics of hypergraphia.
In one case study, a patient taking donepezil reported an elevation in mood and energy levels which led to hypergraphia and other excessive forms of speech such as singing.
Researchers are unsure why donepezil can induce mania and hypergraphia.
It could potentially result from an increase in acetylcholine levels, which would have an effect on the other neurotransmitters in the brain. Dopamine has been known to decrease latent inhibition, which causes a decrease in the ability to habituate to different stimuli. Low latent inhibition leads to an excessive level of stimulation and could contribute to the onset of hypergraphia and general creativity.John R.
