Febrile Seizures book cover

Febrile Seizures

Febrile Seizures is written by the most active researchers and clinicians in epilepsy research today. This book presents the latest developments in this field as well as the current state of knowledge in the following:* New imaging tools and emerging data, visualizing effects of febrile seizures on the brain* New genetic methodologies* The use of animal models to permit scientific analysis of the electrophysiology and molecular biology of the seizure.

Audience
Neurologists, epileptologists, developmental neuroscientists, medical geneticists, and developmental biologists

Reviews

  • "I highly recommend Febrile Seizures to clinical neurologists and neurology residents who would like to own a current, thorough reference book on febrile seizures. It also would be great background reading for junior researchers interested in pediatric epilepsies, mesial temporal sclerosis, or developmental vulnerability to neuronal injury."
    —Elizabeth Donner, Harvard Medical School Children's Hospital for EPILEPSY RESEARCH (2002)


    "...a comprehensive and stimulating review of the state of the art by bringing together experts from many countries and disciplines. ...This is a book that will be a welcome addition to the library of every pediatric neurologist, every epileptologist, and every researcher working on experimantal models of epilepsy. ...It provides a platform for the wealth of diverse and fascinating information about febrile seizures and adds a crucial perspective to a vast array of data that will help new researchers to see the fascinating questions ahead and to avoid potential pitfalls."
    —Eileen P.G. Vining, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine for THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE (August 2002)
    "This is a wonderful book. The editors and contributors are to be congratulated for compiling such a useful monograph. ...the chapters are consistently well written. ...I would enthusiastically recommend this book to everyone who has interest in any aspect of febrile seizures."
    —Marvin A. Fishman, Texas Children's Hospital for PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGY (2002)
