About Frontal Lobe Epilepsy

Mesial frontal lobe epilepsy:

  • Seizures with a motor, or movement, component indicate damage or malformation in the area of the brain that controls movement.
  • Surgical treatment is difficult because traditional imaging techniques do not identify the source of the seizures.
  • At UCLA, doctors use electrodes to locate the seizure focus in the brain and to map essential motor function, allowing surgical removal that eliminates seizures in the majority of cases.


The UCLA Epilepsy Program, in affiliation with the UCLA Seizure Disorder Center, offers surgical options for treating the different types of epilepsy.
