Abstract

OBJECTIVE:: To investigate interhemispheric and intrahemispheric reorganization in patients with localization-related epilepsy. METHOD:: We studied 50 patients with a left hemispheric focus and 20 normal right-handed controls with a 3T echoplanar imaging blood oxygen level dependent functional MRI auditory-based word definition decision task. Data were analyzed using SPM 2. Using region of interest for Broca and Wernicke areas and an asymmetry index (AI), patients were categorized as left language (LL; AI ≥0.20) or atypical language (AL; AI
