Glutamate imaging (GluCEST) lateralizes epileptic foci in nonlesional temporal lobe epilepsy.
When neuroimaging reveals a brain lesion, drug-resistant epilepsy patients show better outcomes after resective surgery than do the one-third of drug-resistant epilepsy patients who have normal brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We applied a glu

Temporal lobe epilepsy with amygdala enlargement: a subtype of temporal lobe epilepsy.
Some recent studies suggest that some imaging-negative temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) had significant amygdala enlargement (AE). Contradictory data were also reported in previous studies regarding the association between AE and TLE. The present study w

Personalized structural image analysis in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy.
Volumetric and morphometric studies have demonstrated structural abnormalities related to chronic epilepsies on a cohort- and population-based level. On a single-patient level, specific patterns of atrophy or cortical reorganization may be widespread

Semantic Processing Impairment in Patients with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy.
The impairment in episodic memory system is the best-known cognitive deficit in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Recent studies have shown evidence of semantic disorders, but they have been less studied than episodic memory. The semantic d

Clinical correlates of graph theory findings in temporal lobe epilepsy.
Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is considered a brain network disorder, additionally representing the most common form of pharmaco-resistant epilepsy in adults. There is increasing evidence that seizures in TLE arise from abnormal epileptogenic networks

T2 hyperintense signal in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy with MRI signs of hippocampal sclerosis and in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy with normal MRI.
Increased MRI T2 signal is commonly present not only in the hippocampus but also in other temporal structures of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), and it is associated with histological abnormalities related to the epileptogenic lesion.
