RE: Simple Partial Seizure

By definition a simple partial seizure does not involve any disturbance of consciousness and they don't have postictal confusion because they did not affect the part of the brain responsible of the alertness (subcortical areas).

As for the EEG is usually not diagnostic in these cases except if it is recorded exactly at the time the patient is experiencing the seizure.
