Seizure, complex partial
A form of partial seizures during which the person does lose awareness. The patient does not actually become unconscious, and may carry out actions as complex as walking, talking, or driving. There may be physical, sensory, and thought disturbances. When the seizure ends, there will be no memory of these actions. See also seizure, seizure partial.
