However, patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy (LTLE) frequently have impaired verbal memory preoperatively. The present analysis of 144 patients who underwent temporal lobe resections for either left (n = 68) or right (n = 76) temporal lobe epilepsy (LTLE, RTLE) addressed the questions of (a) whether a left two-thirds anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) increases deficits in… CONTINUE READING
