Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disease. It refers to a problem where the person suffers a sudden seizure or fit, which makes him/her unconscious or stiff. The seizures are a reoccurring problem in this disease and thus, can also lead to other health issues. There are different types of seizures such as partial seizures, convulsive seizures, generalized seizures, etc. Although, in about 60% cases the cause of this disease remains unknown, yet doctors believe that brain trauma, stroke, tumors or genetic defects and congenital conditions can cause epilepsy. This book provides comprehensive insights into this field. It includes topics for research which interested readers can take up. It presents case studies from across the globe to help the readers better understand the complex subject of epilepsy. The contents of this book will prove to be a beneficial source of reference for students, scientists, neurologists, surgeons and researchers.
