BACKGROUND Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) is a potentially useful tool in the in vivo investigation of brain metabolites in intractable temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Focal N-acetylaspartate (NAA) reductions have been correlated with mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS) in surgically resected epileptogenic foci. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the(More)
