temporo-, tempor-

(Latin: sides of the head near the eyes; temple bones)

Referring to an ear and the temporal region, or the surface region of the head on either side roughly corresponding to the outline of the temporal bone (one of the two irregular bones forming part of the lateral surfaces and base of the skull, and containing the organs of hearing).
bitemporal hemianopia
Blindness in the temporal half of the visual field in each eye.

The temporal halves are located on each side of the head, back of the eyes and forehead, above the zygomatic arch and in front of the ears.

frontal-temporal dementia
Any of several degenerative conditions of the frontal and anterior temporal lobes that cause personality and behavioral changes sometimes mistaken for those of Alzheimer's disease and may eventually progress to immobility and loss of speech.

There isn't the memory loss seen in Alzheimer's disease, but there is often hyperorality (the excessive placing of inedible objects into the mouth).

A reference to the frontal (forehead) and temporal (forming part of the lower cranium) bones.
Denoting the central portion of the temporal lobe of the cerebrum.
norma lateralis, norma temporalis (s) (noun) (no plural)
The outline of the skull as viewed from either side; a profile view: The norma lateralis of Joe's head indicated a slight fracture on the left side which required immediate medical attention.
Of or relating to the orbit and the temporal bone region.
Situated at the posterior part of the temporal bone.
squama temporalis
The anterior and superior part of the temporal bone which is thin and scalelike.
temporal artery
Any of the three arteries on each side of the head; such as, the superficial temporal artery, the middle temporal artery, and the deep temporal artery.
temporal bone
1. A large irregular bone that is situated at the base and the side of the skull.
2. One of a pair of large bones forming part of the lower cranium and containing various cavities and recesses associated with the ear; such as, the tympanic cavity and the auditory tube.
3. A reference to the region of the temple.

The temporal bone is connected with the mandible (the jawbone) via the temporomandibular joint; or the joint that hinges the lower jaw to the temporal bone of the skull.

Each temporal bone consists of four parts: the mastoid (rounded protrusion of bone just behind the ear), the squama (thin, expanded part of a bone; especially, in the the cranial wall), the petrous (stony hardness), and the tympanic (middle ear drum).

temporal lobe
The lobe of the cerebral hemisphere located down on the side just forward of the occipital lobe (rounded projecting part).

The temporal lobe contains the auditory cortex which is responsible for hearing. It is also the site of the seizure activity characteristic of temporal-lobe epilepsy.

Origin, temporal fossa; insertion, coronoid process of mandible and anterior border of ramus; action elevates mandible (closes jaw); its posterior, nearly horizontally-oriented fibers are the primary retractors of the protruded mandible.

Nerve supply, deep temporal branches of mandibular division of trigeminal.

Concerning the temples and the auricular (outer ear) areas.
A large irregular bone situated at the base and side of the skull.

The temporal bone is connected with the mandible (the jaw bone) via the temporomandibular (TM) joint.

The temporal bone consists of three parts (squamous, tympanic and petrous) which are distinct at birth but then fuse.

The petrous portion of the temporal bone contains the vestibulocochlear organ (entrance to the hearing part) of the inner ear.
