Epileptic Disorders

Volume 23, issue 1, February 2021

In its first edition of 2021, the bimonthly journal Epileptic Disorders has adopted a new, more modern layout with more clearly defined sections to make it more visually appealing and user-friendly. These changes reflect a journal that is constantly striving to adapt to the ever-changing nature of the media landscape.

We hope these developments improve your experience of the journal and give it a more streamlined feel. Epileptic Disorders, the official educational journal of the ILAE, remains an essential resource for professionals in the world of epilepsy and for the epilepsy community as a whole.
