Neural responses associated with positive and negative emotion processing in patients with left versus right temporal lobe epilepsy.
Epilepsy Behav. 2006 Nov; 9(3):415-23.EB

Abstract

Studies on emotion processing in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy have dealt mainly with the processing of negative emotions. To further understand the neural basis of emotional disorders in temporal lobe epilepsy, we studied patterns of brain activation induced by implicit processing of negative and positive emotions perceived through facial expressions and emotionally salient stimuli in candidates for surgical treatment of intractable epilepsy. Using functional MRI, we compared, in patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and healthy subjects, the patterns of brain activation elicited by the implicit processing of fearful, sad, and happy faces and pleasant and unpleasant scenes. The results revealed different patterns of activation in patients with left and right mesial temporal lobe epilepsy, compared with healthy subjects, suggesting that the left and right mesial temporal regions are involved differently in emotion processing, which could be related to different contributions in emotional arousal.
