Experimental Models of Epilepsy and Related Comorbidities

Epileptic patients live with epilepsy-associated complications such as cognitive dysfunction, psychological discomfort, and sexual function decline, and are more likely to experience emotional and mental health issues problems, including depression and anxiety. Many antiepileptic drugs are found to have a role in aggravating psychiatric symptoms. Animal models, which inform translational

Computational Neuroscience in Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects millions of patients worldwide and arises from the concurrent action of multiple pathophysiological processes. The power of mathematical analysis and computational modeling is increasingly utilized in basic and clinical epilepsy research to better understand the relative importance of the multi-faceted, seizure-related changes taking

New Antiepileptic Drugs

The pharmacological fight against epilepsy began many centuries ago when Hippocrates discovered that the cause of epilepsy is natural, as opposed to supernatural and, as a consequence, must be treated with a natural remedy. Even though science has significantly progressed since that era, the challenge to find remedies for epilepsy

Animal Models of Epilepsy

Animal models provide a means to investigate fundamental mechanisms of abnormal electrical discharge i.e., seizures. Taking advantage of transgenic and homologous recombination techniques, laboratories have recently moved beyond the standard convulsant or stimulation models in rat to develop novel mouse models of epilepsy. This book provides a review of
