Dyscognitive Seizures

Time distortion, depersonalization, and disorientation are types of cognitive seizures or dyscognitive seizures (2.3) that have all been ascribed to the parahippocam-pal or fusiform gyri (70). Forced thoughts of a repetitive nature, with or without pressured speech, can be seen in some frontal lobe seizures (71). In this section, we deal with those seizures affecting attention and language. Seizures involving mood or affect (affective; 2.2.2.1), memory (mnemonic; 2.2.2.2), or distorted perceptions (illusory - 2.2.2.4) are dealt with under the section on Psychic Seizures. These are all listed under experiential (2.2.2) in the newly proposed ILAE classification (1).
