Epilepsy: Mechanisms, Models, and Translational Perspectives
Length: 684 pages
Publication date: June 15, 2010
Written for researchers and students in neurology and neuroscience or general practitioners interested in epilepsy, this text offers a bridge across the so-called translational divide, to cover innovative treatment strategies that while based on scientific principles have yet to be tested rigorously in clinical settings. The text features contributions of researchers in adult and pediatric epilepsy who cover a range of topics including gene therapy, metabolic regulation, and neuroprotective strategies. It offers an understanding of the pathogenesis and mechanisms of various epilepsy syndromes, highlights therapies with the greatest potential, and identifies challenges common to researchers.
