Phenomenology of simple partial seizures



Phenomenology of simple partial seizures



Seizure 5(4): 283-289



Based on a sample of 325 inpatients we present the subjective experiences during simple partial seizures. In a majority of cases, auras comprised composed forms of different symptomatic qualities. We describe rules which seem to govern sequences of aura phenomena. Autonomous and vestibular sensations were shown to have preceding positions related to others, olfactory and gustatory sensations preferred a following position. The tentative explanation of the findings favours the idea of heterogeneity rather than the concept of a focal discharge in a simple partial seizures.
