Epilepsy is now regarded as much more than a functional disorder of the central nervous system; it is in fact a collection of conditions with different pathophysiologies, multiple manifestations and diverse etiologies. There is now a considerable amount of information regarding the epidemiology, natural history and prognosis of the epilepsies, much of which can be illustrated simply, but effectively, in graphic form. The increasing technological sophistication and understanding of the basic mechanisms and causes of epileptic seizures emphasize the importance of the visual aspects of epilepsy. The electroencephalogram (EEG), which allows the pictorial display of abnormal cerebral activity, is central to the classification of the epilepsies and epilepsy syndromes. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging have revealed not only the obvious, but also the many subtle, structural abnormalities in the brain responsible for seizures, as well as their susceptibility to surgical treatment. Advances in positron emission tomography and single-photon emission tomography are increasingly allowing the production of functional' images of the brain that are particularly relevant to epileptogenesis. The treatment of epilepsy has, since the time of Hughlings Jackson, improved dramatically with the advent of more effective and less toxic antiepileptic drugs, and the development of specialist multidisciplinary services. More specifically, surgical ablation of epileptic foci has vividly demonstrated the marked neuropathological heterogeneity of the epilepsies. An Atlas of Epilepsy provides the first pictorial representation of this most common and chronic disorder of the central nervous system, and also complements the already published textbooks on epilepsy by adding a new, hitherto unexplored, perspective on this group of conditions. This book and its approach to epilepsy should be of interest and value to all those who are involved with the subject.
