The main highlights are:
My overall I.Q. increased slightly - we suspect this is due to not having interference from seizure activity.
My problem solving went down 0.5 Standard Deviations, but is still above average.
My visual memory went down 1.5 Standard Deviations, and is now near the low end of normal.
The fact that my visual memory declined so sharply is not surprising, given the fact that I have markedly increased prosopagnosia compared to before surgery. I can learn new faces to an extent, but it is much more difficult. I also can't just picture somebody's face at will. For most people, all I can visualize is a the corner of the mouth with a small amount of cheek, and/or an eyebrow with some forehead. At times I've noticed a more complete face, and they nearly always are smiling. That being the case, I try to picture people smiling when trying to recall a face. Has anybody else noticed such a connection? If you have prosopagnosia perhaps you can try picturing people smiling and see if it helps.
