Re: why head turnes one way all the time seizure happens,

Hi Pudder69,

Ipsilateral or contralateral head turning (by phase and seizure type?)?

In "Epilepsy surgery" edited by Hans Lüders, Youssef G. Comair (2001), page 421: "Head turning may provide lateralizing or even localizing information,.... ...Forced version is a highly reliable lateralizing sign,.... ..., but is not limited to temporal lobe seizures and in fact is more often suggestive of frontal lobe seizures". Another article is cited in Neurology 1984;34:884, by Ochs, Gloor, Quesney, on page 92:

Another book giving more names is:
