About the Authors
  • Written by experts in the field, this book offers an up-to-date and systematic approach to understanding epilepsy. It focuses on advanced tools and therapies in diagnosis and management, and comprehensively yet simply covers the content of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology certification. Five sections comprise the main text: mechanisms, classification, EEG technical concepts, diagnostic tools, and management. Pathophysiology and pathology of epilepsies are covered, as well as classification of seizures and epilepsies, electro-clinical syndromes, non-epileptic spells, and status epilepticus. Contributors also discuss diagnostic tools such as scalp and intracranial EEG, neuroimaging, and neuropsychological tests, in addition to the management of epilepsy and associated concerns, including anti-seizure drugs, surgical and stimulation therapies, gender issues, comorbidities, and psychosocial aspects. Tables, high-quality pathology, radiology and clinical images, and EEG illustrations aid readers in understanding content. A valuable book for medical trainees, neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses and EEG technologists, and essential certification preparation.

    • Covers topics that are the basis of the certification exam on epilepsy, thereby helping medical trainees and practitioners prepare for board certification
    • High-quality EEG illustrations, pathology and clinical images, and tables ensure that the information is accessible in an easy-to-learn format
    • Readers benefit by learning from top experts in the field of epilepsy
