Objectives: Surgical intervention is a crucial and effective treatment option for patients with temporal lobe epilepsy whose seizures are not under con-trol. However, there is a possibility that surgical intervention may have a negative effect on cognitive functions. Cognitive rehabilitation is a treatment option that has been recently investigated for various neurocognitive problems. This study proposes a protocol for the rehabilitation of the cognitive dysfunctions after temporal lobe epilepsy surgery.
