The human Klüver‐Bucy syndrome
TLDR
The Klüver-Bucy syndrome was transient after head trauma but was a persistent feature of the postencephalitic syndrome, which was combined with aphasia, amnesia, or dementia in all cases.
Catatonia and klüver-bucy syndrome in a patient with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.
TLDR
A young woman who attended the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery of Mexico with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, a clinical entity with relevant white matter damage, presenting with acute catatonia and chronic KBS is presented.
Unilateral temporal lobe damage and the partial Kluver-Bucy syndrome.
TLDR
The case described is that of a 54 year old woman with gross atrophy of her right temporal lobe following neurosurgery who developed hyperphagia, placidity and hyposexuality, which meets criteria for the partial syndrome but without evidence of bilateral damage.
Kluver-Bucy syndrome-a dreadful neuropsychiatric disorder following herpes simplex encephalitis-a case report
TLDR
There is need for early diagnosis and treatment of brain fever to prevent dreadful sequelae, along with early initiation of  rehabilitation and modification of pathological behaviours.
Klüver–Bucy syndrome, hypersexuality, and the law
TLDR
A 51-year-old right-handed man developed hypersexuality after a second right temporal lobectomy to treat epilepsy but he later downloaded child pornography.

Chronic effects of complete limbic lobe destruction in man
TLDR
It is apparent from these studies that the limbic system functions in the outward expression of inner feeling states of fear, anger, affection, pleasurable sensations, and reproductive stimuli.
Distúrbios neuropsiquiátricos por lesões bilaterais do lobo temporal: síndrome de Klüver e Bucy
TLDR
Pneumo-ventriculography, pneumocysternography and isotopoencephalometry showed that the fronto-temporal region was bilaterally affected, but could not make clear the nature of the lesions and explain whether they resulted from lesions of the present disease or whether they were due to a brain disgenesy since the patient had convulsions since her second year of age.
Syndrome of Klüver and Bucy
TLDR
The experimental work of Kliiver and Bucy was supported more recently by Thomson and Walkere who studied the effects of minor rhinencephalic removals in the Macacus rhesus, by Bard7 in the same animal, and by Gastauts and Schreiner and KlingS in cats.
THE EFFECT OF TEMPORAL LOBECTOMY UPON TWO CASES OF AN UNUSUAL FORM OF MENTAL DEFICIENCY
In 1898, when giving the final particulars and the necropsy findings of a case of epilepsy which fully exemplified dreamy states and automatisms, Hughlings Jackson (1931a) wrote that there were
Personality changes following temporal lobectomy for epilepsy.
TLDR
A relationship is found between improvement in psychological status and post-operative freedom from seizures and that of five patients who continued to suffer epileptic seizures after temporal lobectomy.
The visceral brain of man.

TLDR
While it has long been known that visceral symptoms such as pallor, salivation and epigastric distress may herald or accompany an epileptic seizure, these symptoms cannot be regarded as having any localizing value unless a focal brain lesion is proved to be their cause.
[Memory loss with lesions of hippocampal formation. Report of a case with some remarks on the anatomical basis of memory].
TLDR
In 1888, Sanger-Brown and Schafer 1 described an apparent disturbance of memory in monkeys after the partial or total removal of both temporal lobes, and the matter then lay dormant until 1954, when Scoville 3 described a grave loss of recent memory in 2 patients after resection of the medial parts of bothporal lobes.
PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF FUNCTIONS OF THE TEMPORAL LOBES IN MONKEYS
In previous communications1we pointed out that the chief symptoms following bilateral temporal lobectomy in the rhesus monkey consist in "psychic blindness" (Seelenblindheit) or visual agnosia,
LOSS OF RECENT MEMORY AFTER BILATERAL HIPPOCAMPAL LESIONS
TLDR
It is concluded that the anterior hippocampus and hippocampal gyrus, either separately or together, are critically concerned in the retention of current experience.
The limbic system ("visceral brain") and emotional behavior.

TLDR
The limbic lobe, including the infolded hippocampus, was so named by Broca because it completely surrounds the hilus of the hemisphere and its subcortical cell stations include the amygdala, the septal nuclei, the hypothalamus, the anterior thalamic nuclei and parts of the basal ganglia.
