Brief Summary:
This study aims improving the outcome after brain resective surgery of epileptic patients by improving presurgical evaluations. In particular the specific goal is to evaluate the ability of non invasive neuroimaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography) to provide presurgical maps of the functional areas of the brain and of the epileptogenic networks.
