INTRODUCTION: Surgical resection of a lesion that correlates with seizure onset in patients with epilepsy can dramatically improve seizure burden and quality of life. For bilateral hippocampal lesions, bilateral resect...

BACKGROUND: Although anterior temporal lobectomy may be a definitive surgical treatment for epileptic patients with mesial temporal sclerosis, it often results in verbal, visual, and cognitive dysfunction. Studies have...

BACKGROUND: Orbitofrontal epilepsy (OFE) is less known and is poorly characterized in comparison with temporal lobe epilepsy, partly because it is rare and possibly because it is unrecognized and therefore underestimat...

OBJECTIVE: Although the general utility of voxel-based processing of structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data for detecting occult lesions in focal epilepsy is established, many differences exist among studies,...

Nestin is expressed in immature neuroepithelial and progenitor cell types and transiently upregulated in proliferative neuroglial cells responding to acute brain injury, including following seizures. In 36 temporal lob...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The study evaluated the utility of Arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion imaging in Rasmussen's Encephalitis (RE). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The hospital electronic database was searched us...

BACKGROUND: Posterior reversible leukoencephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is linked to various etiologies, including most importantly systemic hypertension. Its association with intracranial hypotension (IH), a potential se...

BACKGROUND: Various reports have described the transuncus (TU) approach as a selective route to the amygdala and hippocampus, but this approach has not yet been submitted to solid postoperative imaging analysis. The ob...
