The book marks the 50th anniversary of the first description of Taylor's focal cortical dysplasia, which revolutionized the world of epilepsy and traces the history of the evolution of concepts in the world of clinical and basic research.

A broad panel of experts in epileptology, neurophysiology, neuropathology, genetics, imaging and brain surgery who have been working on the subject for decades has put together this book, and take stock of the latest advances to better understand and treat epilepsies related to focal cortical dysplasias.

This book offers you:

  1. Concrete information on the best use of all available tools and the most effective medical care.
  2. The basis for possible targeted therapies developed from the latest advances in genetic and molecular research.

The + of the book

--> Dozens of illustrations : A selection of neuropathological slices, structural and functional imaging, surface and depth electroencephalographic recordings (SEEG), intraoperative views, explanatory diagrams and decision trees.

--> State-of-the-art techniques in multimodal imaging (high-field MRI, PET, SPECT, image post- processing), neurophysiology (SEEG, EEG-fMRI, MEG, EEG-HR) and neurosurgery (targeted resections in functional areas, alternative techniques) are detailed and clearly presented in a didactic approach.

--> It is written in English.
