Partial-onset seizures can manifest in many different ways. If one occurs in the part of the brain that regulates digestion, for example, the person experiencing it might feel nausea or a tightening stomach, whereas one that occurs in the temporal lobe can trigger emotions such as anger, fear, joy or nostalgia.
