Observing of the asymmetry of hippocampal formation on patients with complex partial attacks
Keywords:limbic system, hippocampal formation, asymmetry, temporal epilepsy
Lobus limbicus is anatomical basis for explaining the temporal epilepsy because it not only includes the focus of infection of temporal lobe but also the frontal lobe, and with it we can explain many of the phenomenon's of the epilepsy (hallucinations, the change of the effects, and so on.). The goal of this assignment was to explore the asymmetry of hippocampal formation on the patients with complex partial attacks. The results show that the least number of patients with epilepsy have a symmetric (same) size of the hippocampal formation both from the left and the right side. The number is statistically significantly lower than the number of patients with epilepsy who has asymmetric (different size) hippocampal formation both from the left and the right side. By the direction of asymmetry the difference in the number of patients with epilepsy isn't statistically significant. Coefficient. of asymmetry shows that the asymmetry on the left side is more common to men, while it is distributed evenly on sides, left and right in women. Testing of significance in age differences depends on the sim./asim. of the hippocampal formation of both the right and the left side of coronal slice is a statistical significance. While with axial and sagittal slices, we have a statistical significance between a women and a man on the level of the course of asymmetry. So, the use of MRI technique in examining asymmetry of the hippocampal formation, that we used on this asymmetry, we suggest it as an template of future examinations in a sense of shedding light of the anatomical functions that is located on the basis of neuropsychiatrics dysfunctions.
