Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) of the temporal lobe are infrequent and when they occur, they cause various and complex symptoms, including memory, language, hearing, but especially behavior and emotions. This is due to the binding that the temporal lobe has with the limbic cortex. Behavior can become submissive or aggressive; emotionality is expressed with apathy, anhedonia, fear. These disorders have been found by us as provoked by TIAs of the mesial temporal lobe, likely for alterations of the middle cerebral artery. The most frequent symptom in temporal lobe disorders is epilepsy, usually drug-resistant. Cognitive disorders can be mis-diagnosed as epileptic seizures for the susceptibility to epileptogenesis of the temporal lobe.
