Association between hippocampus shape and specific memory differences in temporal lobe epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Specific memory deficits in people undergoing surgery for temporal lobe epilepsy were associated with specific differences in the shape of the hippocampus.

Why this matters

    Assessment of morphological differences in the hippocampus could help stratify risk of different types of memory deficits following epilepsy surgery to improve prognosis and neuropsychological counselling.
