If you have a temporal lobe epilepsy, will the temp lobe always be dysfunctional, or just during seizures?

What if, during a brain scan, you are not feeling your symptoms of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. Will it still pick up that there is an abnormality? As in, if you have a dyfunction, will it show signs of dysfunction at any time, or just when the seizure is occuring?

    Not necessarily on a MRI scan will it show but definately when you have an EEG which your neurologist should make you have. Go to the website I have given you I find it most helpful for answers.
