Idiopathic generalised epilepsy: a pilot study of memory and neuronal dysfunction in the temporal lobes, assessed by magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The memory deficits in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) are associated with epileptogenic lesions of the temporal lobes, especially hippocampal sclerosis. Memory deficits have been extensively studied in TLE, but the presence of pre-existing temporal lobe abnormality has confounded studies on the relationship between memory dysfunction… (More)
