• The parietal lobe processes information about temperature, taste, touch and movement, while the occipital lobe is primarily responsible for vision. (mayoclinic.org)
  • Another portion of the information runs through the parietal lobe, which calculates sound location, motion through space and provides feedback in speech. (livestrong.com)
  • Other imaging modalities that can be used in the diagnosis of temporal lobe epilepsy include computed tomography (CT) scanning, positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, single-photon emission CT (SPECT) scanning, MR spectroscopy, and magnetoencephalography (MEG). (medscape.com)
  • TLE begins in children around 10 years old to late adolescence, but can start at any age if there is a structural lesion in the temporal lobe. (kidshealth.org)
  • The suspected possessed young girl Regan was thought by the neurologists to have a lesion in her temporal lobe causing her to have seizures of which EEG scans showed no such problem. (unexplained-mysteries.com)
  • Temporal lobe seizures may be classified by etiology as cryptogenic, familial, or symptomatic (i.e., related to an identified disease process or lesion). (curehunter.com)
  • In the present study, five patients with left prefrontal cortex lesions (overlapping in ventral and dorsal lateral cortex), eight patients with left lateral temporal cortex lesions (overlapping in middle temporal gyrus), and 13 matched controls performed a picture-word interference task. (springer.com)
  • We propose that left middle temporal lesions affect the lexical activation component, making lexical selection more susceptible to errors. (springer.com)
  • According to the competition view, conceptually driven word retrieval involves the activation of a set of candidate words in left middle temporal cortex. (springer.com)

  • Temporal lobectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the anterior and medial parts of the temporal lobe. (livestrong.com)
  • In a classical review in the "Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine", C. E. Polkey reports that a temporal lobectomy can lead to numerous neurological conditions ranging from visual field deficits to psychotic disorders. (livestrong.com)
  • Despite the severe consequences of removing a large portion of the brain, temporal lobectomy is still performed in the United States when drug therapeutic approaches fail. (livestrong.com)
  • These results fail to reveal a relation between neuronal loss-mossy fiber sprouting and the genesis of temporal lobe epilepsy but suggest that neuronal loss, mossy fiber sprouting, or both contribute to the intensification of chronic seizures. (jneurosci.org)
