I'm looking to find out the difference between a seizure 'aura' and
what happens in a temporal lobe seizure. My research can only point
to motor-like tics with temporal lobe seizures, but the rest of the
temporal lobe seizure description looks identical to me.
I suffered a TBI last April 16th in an automobile accident where a van

days, on to my HMO hospital once I was stabilized enough to transport,
and then a rehabilitation hospital) Everything I have read says that
