Their work not only has thrown light on the nature of the epileptic process in the brain, but has advanced the knowledge of the physiology and anatomy of the brain itself. Great progress has been made in the localization of cerebral function. Especially interesting are observations made by Penfield in the operating room upon the temporal lobe. Stimulation of the temporal cortex in some of his epileptic patients produced "psychical hallucinations" which seemed to be vivid recollections of past events, unfolding like a dream while the electrode was stimulating the temporal cortex.
