Neuropathological Aspects

  • Rezio Raffaele Renella


Neuropathologically temporo-medial lesions are hard to evaluate. There are two main reasons for this. First, current studies do not distinguish between medial and lateral origins of temporal processes, nor do they consider the patterns of growth exhibited by temporal tumors. Second, only little information is actually available concerning the subtle morphological changes which occur around conventional processes in the medial temporal lobe, and this stems mainly from incidental lesions encountered in surgery for epilepsy.
