Tests of intelligence and memory and event related potential (P300) latencies were studied in 60 patients with epilepsy and 25 age matched controls. Patients with epilepsy of less than one month duration had impairment on two tests of intelligence (P< 0.05); whereas patients with chronic epilepsy who were seizure free for more than a year and on anti epileptic drugs showed statistically significant impairment on three tests (P < 0.05). The P3 latencies were prolonged in all patients with epilepsy (>2 S.D.) (P < 0.001) as compared to controls.
