We analysed the influence of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy on the thickness of the corpus callosum (CC) in a large sample of well-characterized patients (n = 96) and healthy controls (n = 28). In particular, we investigated whether callosal structures are differentially affected depending on the affected hemisphere and age of epilepsy onset. Overall, we observed that epilepsy is associated with a decreased thickness in posterior callosal regions. Patients with an early onset, especially… CONTINUE READING
