Описание: This book provides essential information about the variety of seizure disorders and serves as a basic epilepsy reference guide for students and practicing clinical neuropsychologists. In addition to epilepsy neuropsychological assessment issues, the book provides an overview of the known cognitive effects of seizures as well as the adaptive, emotional, and psychiatric consequences of epilepsy including a chapter on psychogenic nonepileptic seizures. Diagnostic tests, such as EEG and structural neuroimaging, are described and the leading treatment options are detailed with a chapter on pharmacologic therapies which reviews the known cognitive and behaivoral side effects of specific antiepileptic drugs. Many of the more rare epilepsy disorders have been included in the appendices for quick and easy reference. The book also details the role of neuropsychology within the epilepsy surgery process including pre-and post-surgery cognitive evaluations, cortical stimulation mapping, functional neuroimaging, and intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) procedures and reviews the major surgical treatment options used in the intractable epilepsies. Case examples are dispersed throughout the text with neuropsychological results as heuristic aids. The book concludes with a glossary of epilepsy terms.

Описание: While a great number of textbooks have been devoted to various medical aspects of childhood epilepsy, none have been as comprehensive and forthright as Neuropsychology of Childhood Epilepsy. Devoted to the neuropsychological description of childhood epilepsy, the editors have uncovered this neurological condition as never before. Divided into three sections, section one may be highly regarded as a necessary introduction to the neuropsychological basis of childhood epilepsy, electro-clinical patterns of various types of epilepsy and brain maturation while section two delves into the characterization of the neuropsychological profile that accompanies focal epilepsies leading to the behavioral and cognitive impairments linked to the transient events that often go unnoticed. Part three covers the medical, surgical and socio-educational management of childhood epilepsy. bsenteeism, learning difficulties, and cognitive dysfunctions may have an impact on a child's self-esteem and upon his or her quality of life. The final part of the volume therefore presents an accurate account of the vast psychological consequences of this disease. This volume is a must read for experimental and cognitive neuropsychologists, medical specialists involved in the care of children with epilepsy and professionals and caretakers dealing with the different aspects of childhood epilepsy alike.

Описание: Integrating the studies of epilepsy, neurosciences, computational neurosciences, mathematics, physics, engineering, and medicine, this volume provides the first means to a clear, structured, and enriching multidisciplinary perspective for developing students, researchers, and clinicians in the field of epilepsy. The text gives up to date information on the state of current research, possible future research, and clinical directions in the fields of epilepsy and seizure dynamics. Clear illustrations that illustrate the patterns of brain electrophysiology and behavioral manifestations are provided to aid comprehension. The authors include extensive references in each chapter to enhance further study.

Описание: Sixty percent of the epilepsies start in childhood, and most of the clinically significant and often life-changing aspects of the disease occur at this time. Childhood epilepsy is frequently a complex disorder, demanding integrated medical, educational and community services. Its treatment encompasses acute and disability medicine. The many types or syndromes of childhood epilepsy present both diagnostic and management challenges. Although many children with epilepsy will be referred to specialist units, the majority will initially present to paediatricians and paediatric neurologists. This book provides a practical, problem-oriented manual to help clinicians with diagnosis, evaluation and management. This book addresses epilepsy as an evolving disorder from presentation, through active disease and finally to either spontaneous remission or a chronic lifelong condition. Structured on the child's age at presentation, Childhood Epilepsy offers a practical overview for paediatricians, paediatric neurologists and primary care practitioners who treat children with epilepsy in their daily practice.

Описание: Surgery offers a highly efficient treatment option for patients with pharmacoresistant epilepsies. While most surgical procedures aim at curative treatment, others have been designed for palliative purposes. Although standardized procedures are available, surgical techniques actually applied vary greatly. However, to date no comprehensive overview on different methods is available. The book of Zentner and Seeger compensates for these shortcomings. It comprises the wide spectrum of current procedures and provides a thorough description of surgical steps. Moreover, detailed information as to results and complications of different procedures is given. Thus, this book not only contains practical instructions for neurosurgeons, but also enables neurologists and epileptologists to understand possibilities and limitations of epilepsy surgery and facilitates adequate consultation of patients and relatives.
Описание: This comprehensive clinical reference focuses on the challenges faced by neurologists in the management of epilepsy patients suffering from other medical conditions. This is the only book available that provides information on how to treat the unique problems of epilepsy patients who have concomitant medical conditions. The contributing authors, all of whom are experts in the field, discuss different diagnostic and treatment approaches that cannot be found in general textbooks on epilepsy. Emphasizing practical clinical information, this book is a necessity for all neurologists involved in the care of epilepsy patients.

Описание: More than half the numbers of children with epilepsy have interrelated language, learning and/or behavior complications. By adulthood, these problems can interfere with socialization and employment. The seizures may be controlled but the developmental distortions can continue to present problems for health and education systems and carers. In this comprehensive and fully referenced book, William Svoboda distils a lifetime of clinical experience with childhood epilepsy into three areas which address each of the main areas of difficulty. In each he looks at why the problems arise and assesses diagnostic and remediative approaches. The focus is on the whole care of the child rather than on diagnosis, classification and medication alone. Clinicians, mental health practitioners, educators and speech–language pathologists will find this book invaluable.
