Class I evidence supports the efficacy of surgical treatment in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy that is refractory to antiseizure medications. One major concern, however, is the risk of memory decline, particularly after temporal lobe resection in the language-dominant hemisphere. A new study evaluates a noninvasive technique to predict these memory deficits. (AU)
