Abstract: Purpose: To determine whether specific temporal lobe simple partial seizures (SPSs) are associated with an abnormal amygdala T-2 (AT(2)) ipsilateral to the seizure focus in patients with intractable unilateral temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). AT(2) relaxation time mapping is a sensitive method for the detection of abnormal tissue in the amygdala in patients with refractory TLE. The relation between an abnormal AT(2) in the epileptic temporal lobe and amygdala seizure onset has not been established.
