Sažetak
According to Trebuchon-Da Fonseca et al (2009), patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy are less successful in lexical processing in comparison to patients with right temporal lobe epilepsy. Epilepsy causes functional differentiation between the anterior temporal lobe structures involved in semantic processing and the neocortical posterior structures involved in lexical processing. The aim of this research is to examine the differences in semantic processing of concrete and abstract words in the Croatian language in patients with lateral temporal lobe epilepsy when compared to healthy subjects on the basis of a quantitative and qualitative analysis. Semantic processing of the aforementioned two groups of words is expected to be less successful in patients with lateral temporal lobe epilepsy than in healthy subjects and differences in lateralization with respect to the focal point are expected as well, i.e. a focal point in the left hemisphere is expected to be found in patients with more severe and specific semantic impairments.
