Auditory hallucinations due to central nervous system lesions
Auditory hallucinations associated with lesions of the central nervous system may be simple or complex. Those resulting from irritative processes (usually seizures) are typically brief, whereas those resulting from release mechanisms are typically prolonged. Initial ictal symptoms are often closely related to the physiological functions of the cortical circuits involved with the seizure locus and, consequently, such symptoms can provide localizing information.
