Abstract

14 epileptic patients (seven males and seven females subjects, aged between 18-27 years, eight affected with temporal lobe epilepsy and six affected with primary generalized epilepsy) underwent a particular 'olfactory memory' test able to evaluate cognitive strategies in free recall evoked by olfactory stimuli. 48 healthy subjects of similar age, volunteered to be used as controls and underwent the test under the same experimental conditions. Our preliminary findings suggest that epileptic subjects use verbal coding in recall more frequently than normal subjects. Furthermore some differences have been found between subjects affected with temporal lobe epilepsy and those affected with generalized epilepsy.
