dc.description.abstractTemporal Lobe Epilepsy ( is the most common form of focal epilepsy About 6 out of 10 people with focal epilepsy have TLE People with TLE have a difficult time becoming seizure free with just seizure medication. These medications can however lower the number of seizures and surgeries can eradicate them. Common causes are prolonged febrile seizures, injury to the brain when young, or head trauma. The typical neurological symptoms of TLE include focal aware seizures such as auras, feeling of déjà vu, fear, panic, and anxiety. They also include focal impaired awareness seizure such as fixed stares, unusual posturing in an arm, speak gibberish, or lose their ability to speak in a sensible manner. Brain imaging in TLE usually reveals hippocampal sclerosis on the MRI. EEG will show spikes or sharp waves in the tip or front of the temporal lobe when a person is awake or asleep.en_US
