Cognitive deficits are common in people with epilepsy and may have impact on education, work, and personal life. Furthermore, cognitive symptoms are often present before seizure onset and often persist upon seizure freedom. As presented in this review, epilepsy is more than just seizures and alike epileptic activity, cognitive dysfunction is a symptom of underlying pathophysiology of the brain and a condition which needs to be addressed when the diagnosis of epilepsy is set. Early identification of cognitive difficulties, relevant rehabilitation plans, and uniform and easily accessible communication across sectors are needed.
