About the Authors
  • Michael Trimble and Bettina Schmitz have assembled a multi-national team of experts to review the most recent findings and explore the interface between epilepsy and behaviour disorders. They begin by looking at the classifications available and examine how adequate they are for defining the subtleties of behavioural changes in patients with neurological disorders. Coverage is broad-ranging, from related cognitive problems, the biological underpinnings and pseudoseizures, to clinical aspects and treatment issues. There has been a great deal of research in this area over recent years, but limited published reviews. This timely book covers the practical implications of ongoing research, and offers both a diagnostic and management perspective. It will be essential reading for all professionals engaged in the treatment of epileptic patients.

    • Addresses the interface between neurology and psychiatry
    • Practical, and treatment-oriented
    • Timely and up-to-date

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… this book serves to show the huge possibilities for research in this fascinating area of neurology, with implications for our understanding of epilepsy and other affective disorders and better treatment of patients in the future.' The Lancet

    '… the book is highly informative on a variety of areas … In my office, I have three shelves above my desk. the lowest shelf contains books that I access regularly when a clinical question arises. This book will sit on that shelf.' British Journal of Psychiatry

    'Extremely well written and edited, the production of the book is well above average. Congratulations to the editors and the authors for providing a state of the art picture of a complex topic like epilepsy. This book should be on the bookshelf of every clinician whether they deal directly with epilepsy or not.' International Journal of Psychiatry

    'This book gives up-to-date reviews with extensive references for further insight and to new developments in classification, basic and clinical research. It illustrates the broad scope of modern neuropsychiatry and the close connection between psychiatry and neurology. This book is certainly warranted.' Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica

    '… nicely produced, extensively indexed, and usefully referenced.' Child and Adolescent Mental Health

    'The book is important in that it gives the background facts about several aspects of neuropsychiatric problems in epilepsy … the book can be recommended to all those treating children and adolescents with epilepsy.' European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
