Abstract

To investigate the role of unilateral amygdala lesions on processing emotions, 22 drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) subjects (12 with left-sided and ten with right-sided focus) were tested, after anterior temporal lobectomy or selective amygdalo-hippocampectomy on two associative learningtasks containing emotional and neutral facial expressions, respectively. Volumetric lesion analysis was performed on the basis of 3-D MR images. No effects of lesion side were found in TLE subjects. Taken thr extent of amygdala damage into account, an interaction effect could be shown between task (learning of neutral facial expressions versus emotional facial expressions) acid group (subjects with little versus considerable amygdala damage), indicating worse performance of subjects with considerable amygdala damage inlearning emotional facial expressions. Subjects with considerable amygdaladamage were also significantly impaired in learning emotional facial expressions when compared with control subjects. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
