abstract

  • Memory for spatial locations appears to be particularly vulnerable to decline when a patient undergoes right-anterior temporal lobe resection (ATR) and when the patient has better spatial memory before surgery. Results provide proportions of subjects with significant change to help clinicians and patients make better informed decisions about risks associated with undergoing right ATR.
