An experiment is reported in which regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) as measured using positron emission tomography (PET) as participants performed conceptual and perceptual memory tasks. Blood flow during two conceptual tests of semantic cued recall and semantic association was compared to a control condition in which participants made semantic(More)
We compared (15)O water positron emission tomography (PET) auditory and visual confrontational naming activation with an intracarotid amobarbital (Amytal) injection procedure (IAP) for language lateralization in 12 patients with intractable epilepsy. PET scans were evaluated by three raters experienced in functional imaging as well as by a region of(More)
We used electrical stimulation mapping to compare performance on auditory and visual naming tasks in inferotemporal, lateral temporal, frontal, and parietal cortex in 8 temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) patients with subdural electrodes placed for preoperative language localization. Performance on auditory responsive naming (ARN) and visual confrontation naming(More)
A 28-year-old woman with epilepsy developed the new onset of paroxysmal tongue tingling during subdural electrode monitoring. Her symptoms coincided with electrographic seizure activity arising from an area of the perisylvian region that had not previously been involved in her habitual seizures. At electrode removal, a focal 2 x 2 cm hematoma was detected(More)
