The current study provided an integrative assessment of the cognitive, behavioral and quantitative MRI findings in 15 children with new onset BRE, compared to 15 healthy age and gender matched controls. Group differences were noted in the neuropsychological executive functioning domain, as well as across two of the three domains measuring parent rated executive functioning. Significant correlations were also noted between age of seizure onset and three of the neuropsychological domains, namely intelligence, language, and memory. Furthermore, cerebral spinal fluid was significantly correlated with language and memory. These findings are discussed and future directions of study are suggested.Abnormal neuroimaging in patients with benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes. Epilepsia. 44(3), 372-378.
