"Quantitaive MRI volumetrics of the basal ganglia and negative symptoms in temporal lobe epilepsy"
Negative symptoms which include reduced ability to experience pleasure and loss of energy, are associated with poor treatment outcome and reduced quality of life. Evidence suggests that key subcortical structures may be responsible for the emergence of negative symptoms, but structural correlated of negative symptoms in elilepsy still require investigation.
