Answer

Patients with a seizure or ictal disorder, especially temporal lobe epilepsy, may occasionally display odd behavior before, during, or after a seizure. Aura and ictal symptoms can include hallucinations, disturbances of memory, or affective and cognitive changes. Ictal and postictal phenomena can include complex motor abnormalities.
