Classification of epileptic seizures utilizes both clinical and electroencephalographic features. The current classification divides seizures into two categories: partial and generalized. Partial seizures involve one cerebral hemisphere, in part or totally. They begin focally, although they may become generalized. Consciousness is preserved but cognitive functions may be transiently impaired: for example, speech may be impaired if the dominant hemisphere is affected. Partial seizures are further subdivided into those with simple or complex symptomatology. In children, simple complex seizures are most often simple motor or sensory phenomena. Complex partial seizures usually begin in temporal or frontal-lobe structures. It is a group that is particularly important to psychiatrists.
