Abstract

The relationship between learning and memory performance and the site of the epileptogenic region is variable. This study analysed verbal and non verbal learning and memory in 100 patients with left (n=59) or right (n=41) temporal lobe epilepsy associated with a focal lesion (hippocampal sclerosis, low-grade glioma or angioma). Thirty six healthy subjects served as controls. Patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy were impaired on verbal tests, whereas both left and right temporal lobe epileptic patients were impaired on visual tests, suggesting that verbal relative to visual tests can better discriminate the side of the epileptogenic lesion. In accordance with the role played by the hippocampus in mnesic processes, learning impairment was strictly associated with mesial temporal lobe lesions.
