abstract
"Research into the neuropsychiatry of epilepsy has become a central focus of interest in the last five years. Comorbidity of epilepsy with behavioral problems is now recognized widely, and the neuroscientific basis for such comorbidity is an active area of investigation. With an expanded international team of authors, this fully revised new edition builds on the strengths of its predecessor, examining in detail the subtleties of behavioral changes in patients with seizure disorders and offering both a diagnostic and a management perspective. New chapters cover genetic disorders, the effects of epilepsy on social behavior as viewed through theory of mind, a discussion of the precuneus, the importance and nature of peri-ictal psychiatric symptoms, depression and the interictal dysphoric disorder, and the relationship between antiepileptic drugs and suicide. This new edition is a must for anyone involved in diagnosing or managing epilepsy"--Provided by publisher.

Reviews
Review Quotes
Review of the first edition: 'The editors did an excellent job in putting together such a broad and complex topic for clinicians treating epilepsy patients ... a must for all neurologists, psychiatrists, and neuropsychiatrists involved in treating epileptic patients and their behavioral disorders.' Doody's Electronic Journal
Review of the first edition: '... the book is highly informative on a variety of areas ... In my office, I have three shelves above my desk. The lowest shelf contains books that I access regularly when a clinical question arises. This book will sit on that shelf.' British Journal of Psychiatry
Review of the first edition: 'Extremely well written and edited, the production of the book is well above average. Congratulations to the editors and the authors for providing a state-of-the-art picture of a complex topic like epilepsy. This book should be on the bookshelf of every clinician whether they deal directly with epilepsy or not.' International Review of Psychiatry
Review of the first edition: 'I find [this book] a valuable resource and reference book on a topic for which there are few sources of similarly well-organized, up-to-date information and recommend it.' Annals of Neurology
'… significantly updated … and addresses many new topics … an excellent resource … The second edition is even better than the first, and should be required reading for all neurologists and psychiatrists.' Doody's Notes
