Understanding Epilepsy (Hardcover)
about this item
Epilepsy is characterized by seizures. These seizures can persist for a shorter or longer duration of time. These are generally a set of neurological disorders that result in constant shaking of the body. They may erupt at any point of time and even have the potential to cause physical damage. The causes underneath these attacks are relatively unknown but some of them may occur due to stroke, brain tumors, brain infections or birth defects. Diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy may involve performing blood tests, brain mapping, electroencephalogram and anticonvulsant medications for entire life. In this book, using case studies and examples, constant effort has been made to make the understanding of the difficult concepts of epilepsy as easy and informative as possible, for the readers. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends revolving around the symptoms, mechanisms, causes, treatment, and management of this disease. Scientists, neurologists, experts and students actively engaged in this field will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.
