Abstract

Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common type of drug-resistant focal epilepsy. Epilepsy can be conceptualized as a network disorder with the epileptogenic zone a critical node of the network. Temporal lobe networks can be identified on the microscale and macroscale, both during the interictal and ictal periods. This review summarizes the current understanding of TLE networks as studied by neurophysiological and imaging techniques discussing both functional and structural connectivity.
