Psychiatric Comorbidity in Epilepsy: Basic Mechanisms, Diagnosis, and Treatment
|von Harry W. McConnell|
From Book News, Inc. Originally based on a May 1994 conference, the text has been expanded to give a broader view of the role of psychiatry within the field of epileptology. Twelve chapters address the critical psychosocial and psychiatric issues that can affect patient care, including depression, psychosis, nonepileptic seizure-like events, antiepileptic drug toxicity, and family issues. They also examine possible links between the neurobiology of neuropsychiatric illness and of seizures, thus providing insight into brain-behavior relationships. Chapters on family systems therapy and living with epilepsy conclude the work. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
