Abstract

Children with epilepsy are at risk for behavioral and cognitive comorbidities. Potential etiologies can be assessed in part by neuroimaging. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has a major role in presurgical evaluation and prediction of postoperative outcome by mapping of language and memory. Structural MRI and functional MRI have shown changes in children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and disruptive behavior, common comorbidities in children with epilepsy. Neuroimaging has the potential for significantly increasing understanding of the basis of cognitive and behavioral problems in children with epilepsy.This article is part of a Special Issue entitled "The Future of Translational Epilepsy Research".
