TLE/deja vu[edit]

Deja vu and smell hallucinations are indeed symptoms of TLE/simple partial seizure disorder.

I wonder why this page doesn't mention smell hallucinations.

The God-Part?[edit]

I think that part of the brain supposedly responsible for religious experiance is located in this area. Funny that it should be intimately linked with auditory processes (i.e. Music) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.80.110.8 (talk) 23:41, 13 April 2007 (UTC).

Expansion needed[edit]

Can someone expand this article? On the article hypergraphia, it mentions that it may be caused by damage to the temporal lobe. Ive also heard that some people fall, damaging their temporal lobes, and when people talk after them falling, they hear a person singing, not a person talking. No mention of such in article. mysterytrey talk 02:09, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

The article on temporal lobe epilepsy is quite a bit longer than this one and has some relevant material. Content writers are in short supply around here -- if you were interested in integrating some material from that article into this one, that would be a valuable thing to do.

Animation[edit]

The rotating diagram of the brain is a great idea, but our perceptual system is designed to pay attention to movement, so the rotation is a constant source of distraction when reading the article text. For this reason, the user should be able to stop the rotation. This observation applies to animation inserts in all articles, including the articles on the four cerebral lobes: frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal.

Relationship with temple bone[edit]

Bones of the human skull

Will need confirmation, but relationship between temporal lobe and temple bone, is overlaying? May not be right, I'm just guessing, but it's a useful mnemonic too, for the side of your head, that is 129.180.166.53 (talk) 15:15, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

I've added a picture showing the bones of the skull -- I don't know a better way to answer the question. Looie496 (talk) 18:29, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Brainstem[edit]

According to the article...

"Medial temporal lobe structures that are critical for long-term memory include the amygdala, brainstem, and hippocampus"

Are we to take this as a statement that the temporal lobe includes the brainstem? 134.173.78.1 (talk) 19:07, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
