Abstract: When this study was initiated, there were few published longitudinal studies on cognition in medically treated patients with refractory epilepsy, and none included reassessment data from healthy controls. At the time there were no long-term reports on surgically treated epilepsy patients. The rationale for this study was therefore to pursue a longitudinal study of cognitive changes in both medically and surgically treated epilepsy patients compared to controls. The aims were: in study I to explo... more
