It was the changes in the right posterior temporal lobe
which resulted in their impairment.
Decision-making activities exercise the frontal lobe of the brain as well as the temporal lobe
and the prefrontal cortex.
epilepsy is a form of focal epilepsy with seizures originating from the brain's temporal lobe

With the increasing evidence for the role of ApoE in repair mechanisms in the brain (3), ApoE polymorphisms and their link to temporal lobe
epilepsy (TLE) has attracted ever more attention (15,16).
One possible explanation is that the temporal lobe
discharges could have an inhibitory effect on the limbic system and thus limbic dysfunction secondary to abatement of the temporal seizures could be responsible for the psychosis.
However, the memory forming benefits of NPTX2 proved to be consistently significant during the two years that researchers tracked memory decline and medial temporal lobe
Seizures arising from the temporal lobe
may invade the insular region in the majority of the patients, but in approximately 10% of cases, the seizures may be originated in the insular cortex itself (3,4).
Older age predicted tau deposition in the medial temporal lobe
and in the basal forebrain and insula, the investigators found.
However, temporal lobe
involvement is usually bilateral but asymmetric and the regions of hemorrhage are typically petechial, as demonstrated in Figure 11.
All patients with traumatic temporal lobe
lesions were included in the study.
epilepsy (TLE) is the most common type of intractable and partial epilepsies which is predominantly associated with history of febrile convulsions and anterior temporal lobe
EEG abnormalities [1, 2].
Scientists at Newcastle University have used brain scans from patients with the most common type of epilepsy - temporal lobe
epilepsy - and computer modelling techniques to look at the brain as an example of a computer network.
The research is published today and is believed to be the first study to combine computational modelling of brain dynamics with patient-specific MRI data from individuals with temporal lobe
The mean distortion score of MRI at nine different sections of head and neck including tongue, body of mandible, hard palate, orbits/globes, nasopharynx, pituitary gland, frontal lobe, temporal lobe
and brain stem with Dantauram metallic orthodontic brackets on the teeth was noted.
