44 children with actual or previous epileptic focus, with or without a radiologically demonstrated lesion, have been evaluated with two verbal tests,the 'Vocabulary' subtest on the WISC and the 'Token Test', to verify whether the epileptic focus could modify the performances of the involved hemisphere, as we found in a previous study by means of tachistoscopic tests. In this study we found that neither the side of the focus, nor the presence of the lesion seems to affect the performances of the epileptic hemisphere.
