Introduction to EpilepsyGonzalo Alarcón (Editor), Antonio Valentín (Editor)


Epilepsy is a complex disease which has significant effects on the well-being and quality of life of patients. Obtaining good pharmacological control of seizures is often time-consuming, involving several changes of therapy. Treatment may last for several years. This introductory book covers all aspects of epilepsy, from basic mechanisms of seizures to diagnosis and management, as well as legal and social considerations. Combining a rigorous academic approach with an emphasis on practical issues, the content provides a clear, concise guide which walks the reader through day-to-day clinical decisions. From basic principles, pathology, physiology and neurochemistry to clinical neurophysiology, genetics, neuroimaging, differential diagnosis and treatment, each chapter offers detailed explanations, summary boxes and learning objectives. Recommended treatment plans enable the reader to offer quick and accurate therapy to patients. This is essential reading for neurologists - particularly trainees - and those providing primary care and allied health support for patients with epilepsy.
