Citation
Description In patients with epilepsy, alteration of awareness (AOA) during seizures is a disabling feature that can potentially lead to serious consequences such as falls and injuries. Regarding the neural mechanisms underlying AOA in focal seizures, some hypotheses have been put forward. In temporal lobe epilepsy, AOA has been related to the extension of the discharge to subcortical structures and to subsequent widespread inhibition [1] or disturbed synchrony process [2] of the fronto-parietal association cortices.
