Abstract

Introduction. Neuropsychology is a discipline included in the
neurosciences which, over the past twenty years, has shown its value in
the assessment and rehabilitation of cognitive functions in different
disorders. In particular, in epilepsy it has permitted the description
of the different factors which affect cognitive deterioration; permitted
the establishment of profiles of cognitive deterioration and also the
evaluation of the adverse effects of some anti-epileptic drugs on
cognition. Development. In this paper we confirm the value of
neuropsychology in an Epilepsy Unit and describe different procedures
for evaluation, as well as the cognitive consequences of the surgery of
epilepsy.
