This volume of International Review of Neurobiology integrates the latest developments in normal and abnormal neuroplasticity and epilepsy, and considers their implications for understanding the basic mechanisms of normal and pathological behaviors. The chapters are written by leaders in the field, and provide comprehensive coverage of the subject, from molecular neurobiology to behavior. This book will help neuroscientists gain a better understanding of the application of fundamental neuronal mechanisms of plastic change to problems relevant to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human disease, particularly epilepsy.
Individuals working in all disciplines of neuroscience, from undergraduate students to experienced investigators, as well as practitioners in the areas of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry

Dr. Moshé is a professor of neurology, neuroscience, and pediatrics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is the Director of Child Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology and the recipient of a Martin A. and Emily L. Fisher fellowship in Neurology and Pediatrics at Albert Einstein. Dr. Moshé received his M.D. from the National University of Athens School of Medicine, Athens, Greece in 1972. He trained in pediatrics at the University of Maryland and in neurology at Albert Einstein. Since 1979, his research has focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying age-related differences in epilepsy in humans and in animal models. During the last ten years, his interest has turned to elucidating the subcortical circuitry involved in the control of seizures as a function of age and the consequences of seizures on the developing brain.
