Book description

Michael Trimble and Bettina Schmitz have assembled a multi-national team of experts to review the most recent findings and explore the interface between epilepsy and behaviour disorders. They begin by looking at the classifications available and examine how adequate they are for defining the subtleties of behavioural changes in patients with neurological disorders. Coverage is broad-ranging, from related cognitive problems, the biological underpinnings and pseudoseizures, to clinical aspects and treatment issues. There has been a great deal of research in this area over recent years, but limited published reviews. This timely book covers the practical implications of ongoing research, and offers both a diagnostic and management perspective. It will be essential reading for all professionals engaged in the treatment of epileptic patients.

'This book gives up-to-date reviews with extensive references for further insight and to new developments in classification, basic and clinical research. It illustrates the broad scope of modern neuropsychiatry and the close connection between psychiatry and neurology. This book is certainly warranted.'
