SEIZURES-COMPLEX PARTIAL SEIZURES

1. Focal seizures with diminished consciousness, common type is the temporal lobe seizure.

2. In this, the preceding aura may be a hallucination or perceptual illusion.

3. There is a period of altered behavior and consciousness, for which the patient is later found to be amnesic.

4. The motor components of the temporal lobe seizure take the form of automatisms (e.g. lip-smacking, chewing or swallowing movements, salivation, fumbling of the hands, or shuffling of the feet).
