A complex partial seizure (also called psychomotor seizure) is most consistent with that behavior. These are defined as focal or asymmetric sensory or motor activity affecting any part of the body and which can be associated with autonomic signs (vomiting, salivation, e.g.) plus a change in mentation (mental status) and/or behavioral abnormalities. How is Bungee doing currently?
