    Many patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy continue to have seizures despite medical therapy. For these patients, one recourse is surgical resection of the mesial temporal lobe, with its attendant risks. Noninvasive treatment with Gamma Knife radiosurgery is under active investigation as a...

    The article discusses a study which investigated the long-term effects of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) on local networks. The study assessed the functional connectivity of the temporal lobe at the time of surgery by means of interictal electrocorticography (ECoG) recordings of 27 TLE patients by...

    It remains unclear whether selective amygdalohippocampectomy, an operative technique developed for use in epilepsy surgery to spare unaffected brain tissue and thus minimize the cognitive consequences of temporal lobe surgery, actually leads to a better memory outcome. The present study was...
