With recent advances in epilepsy research, the availability of more modern techniques (particularly digital sleep and EEG recordings), and the acceptance of this specialty as a significant area for both clinicians and for basic research scientists, this is the appropriate time for a comprehensive textbook. The full impact of the sleep–epilepsy field, for both clinicians and basic research scientists, is given in this book. This edition contains up-to-date, important and relevant information that may be incorporated into the clinical daily practice of both epilepsy and sleep disorders.
