Patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) often suffer from cognitive deficits. However, it remains elusive whether the performance of TLE patients in the attentional networks test (ANT) is impaired. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can accurately reflect the hemodynamics and functional activities in certain regions of the brain. In the current study, we aimed to investigate the characteristics and neural mechanisms of the functions of the alertness network in patients with TLE… CONTINUE READING
