The authors examined the relationship between neuronal densities, glial cell densities, and the glial cell/neuron ratio in the CA1 and CA4 hippocampal subfields and preoperative and postoperative memory function in 47 patients who had undergone a temporal lobectomy (23 right, RTL; 24 left, LTL) for the relief of medically intractable epilepsy. The LTL group performed more poorly than the RTL group on a list learning and story recall task, preoperatively and postoperatively. Both the RTL and LTL… CONTINUE READING
