Occipital epilepsy

1. Primary visual cortex- can cause visual hallucinations and visions, or blindness in a certain area or completely

2. Extra-striate cortex- more complex hallucinations such as people, places, or animals

3. Parieto-occipital junction- nystagmus and other eye and eyelid movements

These studies and others do help in the narrowing of diagnosis and the broadening of understanding OE, but a more specific set of criteria, treatment, and diagnosis for the specific subtype of occipital epilepsy is also necessary to continue increasing patients’ prognosis.
