Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Several days after a right temporal lobectomy for an astrocytoma, a patient experienced a paroxysmal feeling that somebody was nearby. This spontaneous phenomenon has only rarely been reported in the epilepsy literature but has been reported to be evoked by electrical stimulation of the right amygdala. Despite the rarity in the literature, such unusual experiential phenomena probably are seen more frequently in clinical practice.
