Lateralising value of experiential hallucinations in temporal lobe epilepsy

Heydrich, Lukas
Published in Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry. 2015, vol. 86, no. 11, p. 1273-6
Abstract Ever since John Hughlings Jackson first described the so-called 'dreamy state' during temporal lobe epilepsy, that is, the sense of an abnormal familiarity (déjà vu) or vivid memory-like hallucinations from the past (experiential hallucinations), these phenomena have been studied and repeatedly linked to mesial temporal lobe structures. However, little is known about the lateralising value of either déjà vu or experiential hallucinations.
