Abnormalities in white matter have been linked to processing speed impairment in clinical populations (e.g., multiple sclerosis, closed head injury). Recent studies indicate the presence of significant reduction in cerebral white matter volume in some patients with chronic temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between white matter volume and processing speed and performance efficiency on the Sternberg Memory Scanning Test (SMST). The study… CONTINUE READING
