Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Epilepsies are one of most frequent chronic neurological disorders occurring as a consequence of different aetiologies, e.g., genetic, traumatic, tumoral, vascular, degenerative and inflammatory origin. The spectrum of clinical signs is widely diversified and includes motoric, sensoric, psychical or autonomic phenomena. The disability, more often than not, is restricted to the seizure time only. Secondary health conditions can lead to psychosocial problems, stress, social discrimination and reduced employment prospects. Patients with epilepsy also have a higher risk of comorbidities, mental health problems, depression and SUDEP. It is therefore critical that improvements in early diagnosis, precise information of structural pathology (imaging) or localization (noninvasively by EEG/MEG), individually optimized drug treatment and epilepsy surgery become more advanced and that improvements be informed by evidence-based research. Accordingly, we are announcing a new Special Issue entitled “New Trends in Diagnosis and Treatment of Epilepsy. We invite researchers to submit original research and systematic reviews that investigate features of the nature, diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, including the presentation of novel interventions that constitute an advance in epilepsy management.
