Mapping the Areas of the Brain Associated With Language in Children With Epilepsy
Launched by NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS AND STROKE (NINDS) · Nov 3, 1999
Current as of December 10, 2023
We propose to study the feasibility of utilizing MRI to perform functional mapping of language cortex in children with epilepsy. We will use 1.5 Tesla MRI to study cerebral blood flow and tissue oxygenation during cognitive activation tasks derived from previous adult studies.
- Children aged 5-17 years.
- Partial epilepsy (localized).
- Ability to cooperate with task paradigms (IQ greater than 65).
- No cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, shrapnel, vascular clips, braces, or claustrophobia.
- No one with inability to cooperate with task paradigms.
