Epilepsy – When Chaos Fails

  title={Epilepsy – When Chaos Fails},
  author={Klaus Lehnertz and J. Chris Sackellares and Deng-Shan Shiau},
Temporal lobe epilepsy is characterized by episodic paroxysmal electrical discharges (ictal activity) originating in mesial structures of the temporal lobe. These discharges consist of organized synchronous activity of mesial temporal neurons, particularly those of the hippocampus. This activity is seen as rhythmic medium to high amplitude slow waves or spike and slow wave discharges on the electroencephalogram (EEG). The ictal discharges (seizures) often spread to involve widespread regions of… CONTINUE READING
