Figure 2 Relationship between preoperative functional MRI (fMRI) activation and postoperative memory change within dominant and non-dominant hippocampal (HC) regions of interest. For patients undergoing dominant anterior temporal lobe resection, a significant correlation was seen between dominant hippocampal encoding related fMRI activation for words and postoperative decline in verbal learning (VL) (red line). No significant correlation was seen in the non-dominant hippocampus (green line).
