    Hi Samuel, thanks for your thoughts. I imagine that to be part of the story – is the idea that these patients have such severe epilepsy that pre-op all meaningful functions and processes essentially emigrate from the epileptic hemisphere to the non-epileptic one? We know from cases of child hemispherectomy that a hemisphere is capable of essentially rewiring itself to pick up the slack of a missing hemisphere, but these cases of adult ops are harder for me to reconcile.
