From the Publisher"In summary, I strongly congratulate the editors and authors for producing a book that accomplishes its task of refocusing epilepsy research on its primary directive, translation of scientific discoveries into interventions and methods that directly relate and promise to improve the quality of medical care our patients with seizures receive. Although not exhaustive enough, it will be an invaluable primer for young investigators but also for more senior researchers who aim to create new bridges with aspects of epilepsy research that are more distant from their immediate focus."

Praise for the First Edition
"… a much-needed textbook. It attempts to integrate data regarding the most relevant developments in research with those regarding clinical issues that have a direct effect on therapeutics. The book achieves this goal by reviewing current therapies and discussing new areas of research and treatment. Much of what is discussed provides a good review for not only the epilepsy community but also for general neurologists. …Perhaps the most exciting discussion in the book concerns the future of epilepsy research and treatment. …Although such goals may have seemed far-reaching a decade ago, the findings and ideas presented here make the concept of antiepileptogenesis appear to be an attainable goal."
