Epilepsy & Seizures
Seizures of the posterior neocortex
Occipital and parietal lobe seizures have distinct clinical characteristics. Occipital lobe seizures present with visual symptoms, eye blinking, and nystagmus. Parietal lobe seizures may present with somatosensory symptoms, ictal pain, and visuospatial abnormalities. Occipital and parietal lobe seizures may propagate forward and mimic temporal and frontal lobe seizures. Prognosis depends on the underlying etiology of the seizures.
