The relationship between the degree and distribution of hippocampal atrophy measured by volumetric magnetic resonance imaging and severity of memory deficits in 25 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy secondary to mesial temporal sclerosis was assessed. Hippocampal volumes were expressed as a ratio of smaller to larger, normal ratio greater than 0.95. Neuropsychology tests included: subtests of the WAIS-R, Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Task, Rey Figure and the Austin Maze. Degree of left… CONTINUE READING
