Doctor insights on: Parietal lobe stroke
Part of brain:
It is part of brain positioned above the occipital lobe and behind the frontal lobe.
Its function is to integrate sensory information from the visual cortex. It includes infomation processing related to the sense of touch. So it is involved in visuospatial processing. It is also involved with language processing. ...Read more
Integration center: Parietal lobe provides localization, timing, and integration of incoming brain data, and gives us perspective on the outside world. Regarding sense of touch, it allows simultaneous perspectives, and perception of location of the touch, including intensity of sensation. ...Read more
NO!: All sensations are organized and responded by THALAMUS Only cortical sensation s are controlled by the parietal lobes (2 point discriminationn, stereognosis i.e. the shape of objects, also the weight of objects) ...Read more
Critical: Dominant speech pathways connect via the arcuate fasciculus, and connect expressive centers in frontal broca's area to receptive regions in the temporal lobe. ...Read more
Impossible: You cannot have a pain in your temporal or parietal lobe. Your brain has no pain nerves. All sensations are processed in the brain but experienced elsewhere in the body. Whatever pain you're feeling, it's not in your brain tissue. ...Read more
Yes: Contralateral weakness can be present. Sensation is altered on the same side, and pts have trouble localizing motion in time and space. Extinction phenomena occur, position sensation can be lost, the affected limb may not be recognized or even thought to be part of another person. ...Read more
On an EEG- What does it mean if you had "longer than normal recovery from HV" and spikes & slowing in parietal lobe??
It would help knowing why you had the EEG. I am not so worried about the "HV" recovery but the spikes and slowing in the left temporal lobe is not normal and suggests that you might have epilepsy or s structural brain lesion and should have an MRI of the brain. This should be discussed with your doctor.
Hope that helps,

Dent from car crash, on top of head in parietal lobe, had over 10 years no problems, just curious, 1-2 inch wide?
Yikes: I guess if you have not had trouble with it in several years, it is unlikely to cause trouble now. What you are describing would be concerning for a displaced skull fracture, but again, it has been several years now since the accident. A ct skull would undoubtedly give more information and I would recommend you being seen if you are concerned. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is either the temporal or parietal lobe part of my head that hurts and when it does my neck hurts at the same time with my shoulder too. And someti?
Sudden dent at the back of the parietal lobe that I noticed 1 month ago. Getting mild headaches near that spot. Fearing tumors. What could it be?

My son had a syncopal episode with a concussion. He had major swelling on the top of his head (parietal lobe). He cannot smell/taste. Will it return?
My mom 52 yrs of age with no underlying condition has been diagnosed with meningioma in left parietal lobe along the falx of the size 4.6 X 4.5 X 4 cm?
May need tx: Does your mom have symptom? Symptomatic meningioma >4cm generally requires tx. Asymptomatic meningioma > 4cm usually will be treated, or observed occationally according to the NCCN. Tx will involve surgery if accessible, followed by radiation depending on the pathology or may be radiation alone. You should see an oncologist to have a thorough review of the case and then decide. ...Read more
Calcification of a lesion in the left parietal lobe along the falx no symptoms except occasional focal fit?
Probably from pork: Cysticercosis is an infection by the pork tapeworm (Taenia solium). Infected people may have no symptoms for years, then if a cyst of the tapeworm forms in the brain, it is one of the most common causes of seizures. In some parts of the world up to 1/4 of the people have cysticercosis. Avoid eating pork to prevent more cysts from forming in your body. The best diet for humans is eating plants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What do you advise if I want to know: is the occipital lobe directly attached to the parietal lobe, frontal lobe or the temporal lobe?
The occipital lobe: Borders the temporal and parietal lobes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Chronic periventricular white matter focus left parietal lobe. The etiology is non specific in nature? There were finding in MRI. Meaning!?
Good question: At this time MRI is very sensitive to any type of damage or changes in tissue but we still have to go by pattern recognition to diagnose anything. This is the reason the read says "non specific". One lesion doesn't mean anything unless it fits a pattern. We see this all the time and it is considered a normal variant meaning it is not normal but found in enough people to be considered normal. ...Read more
Found out today that I have "parietal lobe epilepsy". But my neurologist wasn't really clear on what it means & how to treat it long term--any advice?
I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?
Hard to say: It is hard to say. From your question, it sounds as though you had injury demonstrated either by ct scan or MRI scan. One may have no problems at all, it depends on the size of the injury and the exact location in these regions. If you are asking what these areas typically do: r frontal: smell, memory, impulse control, left sided movement. L parietal: speech, language, right sided movement. ...Read more
