|Abstract:||This review poses the question: Does disruption to cognitive brain networks in epilepsy contribute to the problem of comorbid depression? Initial evidence suggests that the network disease that gives rise to seizures has a predilection for the same cognition-related networks that regulate mood, with comorbidity reflective of more extensive disease. Framing both epilepsy and its psychiatric comorbidities in terms of dysfunction in overlapping (cognitive) networks raises the possibility that depression can be a primary feature of the disease in some cases and facilitates an epilepsy classification system where behavioral features of the disorder are embedded in a neurobiological mechanism.|
