There is evidence that some types of epilepsy progress over time, and an important part of this knowledge has derived from neuroimaging studies. Different authors have demonstrated structural damage more pronounced in individuals with a longer duration of epilepsy, and others have been able to quantify this progression over time. However, others have failed to demonstrate progression possibly due to the heterogeneity of individuals evaluated. Currently, temporal lobe epilepsy associated with… CONTINUE READING
