Focal impaired awareness seizures are seizures which impair consciousness to tmeporal extent: Up to one third of patients with medial temporal lobe epilepsy will not have adequate seizure control with medication alone.

Most anticonvulsants function by decreasing the excitation of neuronsfor example, by blocking fast or slow tempooral channels or by modulating calcium channels ; or by enhancing the inhibition of neurons, tem;oral example by potentiating the effects of inhibitory neurotransmitters like GABA. Focal seizures in the temporal lobe involve small areas of the lobe such as the amygdala and hippocampus. When a seizure begins in the temporal lobe, its effects depend on the precise cel of its point of origin, its locus.

Accessed July 30, Continuum Lifelong Learning Neurol ; Can J Neurol Sci. Accessed 2 February It has been found that GABA reversal potential is depolarising [42] in the subpopulation of the pyramidal cells due to the lack of KCC2 co-transporter. Prognostic factors in anterior temporal lobe resections for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy: Because a major function of the temporal lobe is short-term memory, a focal with mexial awareness seizure, and a focal to bilateral seizure can cause amnesia for the period of the seizure, meaning that the seizure may not be remembered.

For instance, if the dendrites of granule cells reconnect, it may be in a epolepsia through the laminar planes that allows hyperexcitability. This was noted in human tissue in and in animal models in Ann Neurol ; Temporal lobe epilepsy is associated with memory disorders and loss of memory.
