    Temporal lobe seizures have a significant chance to induce impairment of normal brain functions. Even after the termination of ictal discharges, during the post-ictal period, loss of consciousness, decreased responsiveness or other cognitive dysfunctions can persist. Previous studies have found...

    An encyclopedia entry for "dacrystic seizures" is presented. This type of seizure is characterized by brief episodes of crying, with or with-out impairment of consciousness, and are rarely seen. Patients with limbic epilepsy have higher likelihood to experience postictal depression with crying....

    Temporal lobe seizures are accompanied by complex behavioral phenomena including loss of consciousness, dystonic movements and neuroendocrine changes. These phenomena may arise from extended neural networks beyond the temporal lobe. To investigate this, we imaged cerebral blood flow (CBF)...

    Generalized tonic–clonic seizures are among the most dramatic physiological events in the nervous system. The brain regions involved during partial seizures with secondary generalization have not been thoroughly investigated in humans. We used single photon emission computed tomography...

    Generally, activation of the frontal eye field during seizures can cause versive (forced) gaze deviation, while non-versive head deviation is hypothesised to result from ictal neglect after inactivation of the ipsilateral temporo-parietal area. Almost all non-versive head deviations occurring...

    Electroencephalography (EEG) is an important tool for diagnosing, lateralizing and localizing temporal lobe seizures. In this paper, we review the EEG characteristics of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Several "non-standard" electrodes may be needed to further evaluate the EEG localization, Ictal...

    The relation between epileptic spikes and seizures is an important but still unresolved question in epilepsy research. Preclinical and clinical studies have produced inconclusive results on the causality or even on the existence of such a relation. We set to investigate this relation taking in...

    Neurological manifestations may complicate Takayasu arteritis (TA) but seizures are rare. A 40-year-old man with TA presented with recurrent episodes of epileptic seizures. Episodes consisted of a brief period of unresponsiveness followed by sudden falling, tonic stiffening and limb jerking. A...

    Introduction: Seizures are the most frequent neurologic disorder seen in childhood. Epilepsy is a group of disorders that includes an abnormally increased susceptibility to seizures. Aim: To examine the effectiveness of SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography) in detecting seizure...
