Aims and objectives

Background

 

FMRI for language has replaced the WADA test in the majority of epilepsy centres, and while WADA has been used as a test to predict memory outcome, the reliability and validity remains questioned.1

 

fMRI is a non-invasive technique that has substantial potential to lateralize memory functions and predict post-operative memory outcome in epilepsy patients undergoing temporal lobe epilepsy surgery.1,2

 

Aim

 

Aim of the study is to testify the cognitive functional outcome of temporal lobe epilepsy surgery based on memory fMRI using the Home Town Walking Paradigm.
