Description


Reflex epilepsies can provide qualitative and quantitative insights into the complexities of ictogenesis. This is what the chapters of this book are about, dealing with such varied modes of precipitation as hot water, eating, touch and movement, music, and emotions. The relation of several reflex epileptic mechanisms to Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy is discussed as well as the meaning of their occurrence across syndromes for our present nosological understanding of epilepsy. Our traditional dichotomy seems out-dated as functional studies of trigger mechanisms rather point to central nervous subsystems acting as pathological networks generating seizures in both generalised and localisation-related epilepsies. This book makes the point on research for a better comprehension of the current nosology of the epilepsy. A reference work written by the best international specialists in epilepsy.
