Abstract

Behavioral changes, such as mood disorders, anxiety, psychosis, and nonepileptic seizures often occur after temporal lobectomy. We report a man who selectively lost emotional attachments to family members after right temporal lobectomy. However, emotional responsiveness to strangers was normal or increased.
