Si esto sucede en solo una zona del cerebro, el resultado son convulsiones localizadas. Aberrant mossy fibre sprouting may create excitatory feedback circuits that lead to temporal lobe seizures.

Ann Neurol ; Focal aware seizures often last less than sixty seconds; focal with impaired awareness seizures may last up to two minutes; and generalized tonic clonic seizures may last up to three minutes. 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. Surgical outcome of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy related to hippocampal sclerosis.


It has been shown that it is theoretically possible to generate seizures in the neural networks due to down-regulation of KCC2, [43] consistent with the chloride measurements during the transition to seizure [44] and KCC2 blockade experiments. A Textbook of Neuropsychiatry 4th ed.

Acta Neurol Colomb ; The newer classification gives two types of focal onset seizuresas focal aware and focal impaired awareness.

Although the theory is controversial, there is a link between febrile seizures seizures coinciding with episodes of fever in young children and subsequent temporal lobe epilepsy, at least epidemiologically. However, aberrant mossy fiber sprouting may inhibit excitatory transmission by synapsing with basket cells which are inhibitory neurons and by releasing GABA and neuropeptide Y which are inhibitory neurotransmitters.

For patients tempkral medial TLE whose seizures remain uncontrolled after trials of several types of anticonvulsants that is, the epilepsy is intractablesurgical excision of the affected temporal lobe may be considered.

In TLE, the most commonly used older medications are phenytoincarbamazepineprimidonevalproateand phenobarbital. Personality and behavioural change in temporal lobe epilepsy is seen as a chronic condition when it persists for more than three months.

Focal impaired awareness seizures are seizures which impair consciousness to some extent: Neuronal loss on the right is more prominent in non-verbal visuospatial memory loss.


A study inreported that intrinsic religiosity and religiosity outside of organized religion were higher in patients with epilepsy than in controls.

Prognosis after temporal lobe epilepsy surgery: They say a picture paints a thousand words.

Loss of epllepsia cells lowers the threshold of action potentials of the granule cells. In the TLE brain, where granule cells are damaged or lost, axons, the mossy fibres, ‘sprout’ in order to reconnect to other granule cell dendrites. Moreover, they must sign a model release that should be sent. Focal aware means that the level of consciousness is not altered during the seizure.
