A neuropsychological model for the pre-surgical evaluation of children with focal-onset epilepsy: An integrated approach


Epilepsy is now recognized as a network disorder and this conceptualization is central to the ILAE Classification System [1–4]. In clinical practice this framework requires the clinician to think broadly in terms of the range of deficits that can be associated with focal-onset epilepsies, including temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE). Pre-surgical decision-making has traditionally focused on the localization and lateralization of function, which is seemingly juxtaposed to the network approach.
