This second edition of Seizures and Epilepsy, written almost a quarter of a century after the ground-breaking first edition, is more than an update: it is a complete revision due to tremendous advances in the field. Our understanding of the fundamental neuronal mechanisms underlying epileptic phenomena, as well as current diagnosis and treatment, have been heavily influenced over the past several decades by seminal neuroscientific developments, particularly the introduction of molecular neurobiology, genetics, and modern neuroimaging. According to the World Health Organization, epilepsy accounts for 1% of the global burden of disease, equivalent to breast cancer in women and lung cancer in men. Among primary disorders of the brain, it is equivalent to depression, dementia, and substance abuse. Singly authored by Jerome Engel, Jr, this must-read from 1989 reasserts itself as a modern classic comprehensive textbook covering a broad range of both basic and clinical epileptology.

Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Neuromuscular Disorders covers the scientific basis, clinical diagnosis, and treatment of neuromuscular disorders with a particular focus on the most clinically relevant disorders. The book is organized into seven sections, starting with the general approach to the patient with neuromuscular disorders and then focusing on specific neuromuscular conditions affecting the peripheral nervous system from its origins at the spinal cord anterior horn on its outward course to their effector muscles and the inbound sensory pathways. Chapters on specific neuromuscular conditions are illustrated with typical case histories and their presenting features, allowing readers to put rarer conditions into their clinical context more easily. The concurrent online version allows access to the full content of the textbook, contains links from the references to primary research journal articles, allows full text searches, and provides access to figures and tables that can be downloaded to PowerPoint®. This textbook will serve as a useful reference for neurologists and specialist trainees in neurology, neuroscientists, neurophysiologists, and other healthcare professionals.

Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Clinical Neurophysiology includes sections that provide a summary of the basic science underlying neurophysiological techniques, a description of the techniques themselves, including normal values, and a description of the use of the techniques in clinical situations. Much of diagnostic neurophysiology is essentially pattern recognition which is illustrated throughout the text using audio and video examples. Divided into four key sections, this book begins with the scientific basis of clinical neurophysiology (Section 1) before exploring specific techniques including Electromyography, Intracranial EEG recordings, and Magnetoencephalography (Section 2). The final two sections explore clinical aspects of both the peripheral nervous system (Section 3) and the central nervous system (Section 4).

Atlas of EEG, Seizure Semiology, & Management, Second Edition, is a richly-illustrated guide to the performance and interpretation of EEG and management of epilepsy. Revised and updated in its Second Edition, this new text features hundreds of detailed EEGs, and covers the science in extensive scope and detail, beginning with basic electronics and physiology and then moving through EEG interpretation, epilepsy diagnosis, and ultimately epilepsy management. The new edition also includes all basic classifications and definitions of seizures and epilepsy, making it the perfect clinical companion. Atlas of EEG, Seizure Semiology, & Management utilizes full-color EEG presentations, alongside an easy-to-read synthesis of anatomy, physiology, and available treatment modalities. These detailed explanations of wave pattern, presentatoin, and treatment provide the student and practitioner with the most informed sense of clinical application and readiness. Atlas of EEG, Seizure Semiology, & Management covers every type of seizure, both epileptic and non-epileptic and divided into eight concise chapters. This unique atlas is necessary reading for all practicing neurologists, fellows, and residents.

'. . . it has a pleasing consistency of style... this is an excellent book which is a must read for all interested in the fields covered. While not claiming to tell us how the brain works, Somjen sticks with the facts and describes in exquisite detail what happens when the brain malfunctions, which is surely how successful strategies for combating devastating neurological conditions will ultimately be devised. A worthy testament to an exemplary scientific career.' -Physiology News, No 56Ions, their transport across membranes, and their flow through specialized ion channels are central to the understanding of brain function, normal and pathological. The first part of this book deals with the regulation of ions in brain extra- and intracellular fluids. Regulation is effected by the blood-brain barrier, and by membrane ion pumps and other transport mechanisms of neurons and glial cells. Normally adjusted for optimal neural function, ion levels can change and alter the excitability of neurons and influence synaptic transmission in healthy and diseased brains. After an introduction to the electrophysiology of epilepsy, and a description of experimental seizure models, the second part discusses the roles of the faulty regulation of ions and of the diseases of ion channels in generating epileptic seizures. The mechanisms of action of various anticonvulsant drugs are also considered. The third part is devoted to the phenomenon of spreading depression and its likely role in human diseases. The final chapters of the book deal with the role of ions in the devastation caused by lack of oxygen and by insufficient blood flow to brain tissue, and the reasons for the exceptional vulnerability of certain classes of central neurons in hypoxia and stroke. The book will be of interest to neuroscientists, neurobiologists, neurophysiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and to their students and trainees.Readership: Graduates in neuroscience, neurobiology and electrophysiology, clinical residents in neurology and neurosurgery, researchers and graduate students in neuroscience, neurobiology, (neuro)physiology, specialist physicians and residents in training in neurology, neurosurgery
