temporal lobe epilepsy
The temporal lobe forms much of the lower side of each half of the cerebrum.
Symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment
Attacks of this form of epilepsy cause dreamlike states, unpleasant hallucinations of smell or taste, the perception of an illusory scene, or déjà vu. There may also be grimacing, rotation of the head and eyes, and sucking and chewing movements. The affected person may have no memory of activities during an attack, which can last for minutes or hours. Sometimes the seizure develops into a grand mal seizure.
Diagnosis and drug treatment is the same as for other forms of epilepsy.
