Deep brain stimulation has been used effectively for many years to treat patients suffering from Parkinson's disease. Now, neurologists and neurosurgeons are using electric pulse generators to block abnormal activity, i.e. epileptic fits. Promising research results indicate that electric pulses implanted deep in the brain can affect neurocircuitry and help stop oncoming seizures. Supplying a solid background on brain stimulation and its application to epilepsy, Deep Brain Stimulation and Epilepsy provides a historical overview, explores pathogenesis of brain stimulation, discusses animal experiments and human studies, and explores future prospects of brain stimulation for epileptic control. The editor and his team of contributors distill information drawn directly from the literature into one convenient resource.
