Tremendous advances in our understanding of epilepsy have occurred in the last two decades. Techniques such as electroencephalography, neuroimaging, neurosurgery and neuropsychology are giving us a better understanding of the pathogenesis of epilepsy. Additionally major breakthroughs are taking place in the laboratories of scientists studying genetics, embryogenesis, neuropathology, neurochemistry and pharmacology. These advances provide a much better understanding of why patients develop epilepsy, reshaping the way in which the epileptic patient is cared for. This book presents the most current information on the various etiologies of epilepsy, their treatments, and their possible prevention. Kotagal and Lüders have assembled 80 internationally known experts to compile this authoritative, comprehensive, and well-rounded work.
