Abstract

Identification of the brain regions contributing to different language-related functions in patients with intractable frontal lobe epilepsy,may help in the pre-surgical identification of cortical and subcortical speech areas. A non-invasive procedure that may provide better spatial resolution and intrahemispheric localization, compared to the Wada test, is functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Determination of the degree of non-dominant hemisphere contributions to language is particularly important in patients with intractable epilepsy, prior to surgical resection of the epileptogenic foci. Epilepsy is associated with brain dysfunction and/or tissue damage to varying degrees, and it has been suggested that re-organization of language functions may occur quite often among this population.
