This volume provides up to date knowledge of the pharmacologies of the various antiepileptic drugs, especially those which have become available since 1984 when the previous edition (Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology, Volume 74: Antiepileptic Drugs, edited by H.-H. Frey and D. Janz) appeared. The data concerning the individual drugs are presented in a structured format. There are also chapters providing overviews of subjects such as the neurophysiological and biochemical mechanisms of action of the antiepileptic drugs, their testing in experimental animals, their interactions, their clinical use, and the new agents currently in the course of development.
