Caption: Motor area brain activation, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. Brain of a left-handed 22-year-old man with epilepsy originating from the right temporal lobe, which has caused sclerosis (hardening) of the hippocampus. Three different views are seen - clockwise from top left: sagittal (front of brain at right), coronal, transverse (front of brain at right). Activation (coloured areas) can be seen in regions of the motor cortex, during alternate flexing and extension of the left thumb. The hippocampus is involved in memory formation. As such, damage to this area can cause memory problems, but motor controls are largely unaffected.
