Abstract: Studying and treating epilepsy is difficult on several grounds, including the relative insensitivity of available methods and the disorder’s intrinsic complex pathophysiology. Patients frequently have a wholly normal neurological exam, and as the most commonly used evaluation, the scalp EEG is known to be coarse and very hit-or-miss. It is not surprising then that neuroimaging is an essential component in the assessment of epilepsy; e.g., as demonstrated with the near mandated use of high accuracy structural MRI in all epilepsy. In this talk, we will push the envelope further in discussing the insights available from newer methods of functional neuroimaging, discussing work from animal and human studies. With recognition that brain function does not always parallel brain anatomy, imaging methods that are sensitive to various aspects of brain metabolism and physiology have a real role to play in better understand this complex disorder.
