Book written in english
In addition to the symptoms and signs of their condition, patients with epilepsy also often experience neuropsychiatric disorders which have a significant impact on their quality of life.
Many epileptic patients also suffer from psychosis. Neuropsychiatric development disorders in epileptic children are also common, as are psychiatric problems after surgery for epilepsy. Pre-existing psychiatric problems may result in surgical complications.
The aim of this book is to list the current understanding of neuropsychiatric issues in epilepsy.
Psychiatrists, epilepsy specialists, neurologists, neuropediatricians and surgeons have joined forces to share their experiences and discuss the advances made in this field.
Understanding the mechanisms linking epilepsy to psychiatric disorders makes it possible to establish effective treatments and also improve the quality of life of these patients.
