Seizure Activity
  • Focal Seizures These terms reflect the extent of brain involvement in the seizure activity. In focal seizure, only a part of the body is involved. Generalized seizures spread to both sides during seizure activity.[doctorstrizhak.com]

  • (B) Propagation of seizure activity from the mesial temporal lobe to the ipsilateral lateral temporal lobe and the contralateral temporal lobe. (C) Spread of seizure activity from bilateral temporal lobes to midline subcortical structures.[slideplayer.com]
  • Partial Motor Seizures Seizure activity originating in one side of the brain is manifested in the opposite side of the face, limbs, or trunk. There may be rhythmical jerking or persistent spasm of the affected part.[healthhype.com]
