Medial temporal lobe pHi and IQ were compared in 33 men and women undergoing evaluation for epilepsy surgery. No consistent correlation between medial temporal lobe pHi and IQ measures was observed. pHi measures from the two hemispheres were poorly correlated. We were unable to replicate the report of Rae, et al. (1996) of a significant positive correlation between brain pHi and IQ.
