Special Issue "Advances in Epilepsy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Epilepsy research is experiencing a new era due to rapid advances guaranteed by the new frontiers of basic sciences. Genetics has revolutionized the vision of idiopathic epilepsies and, together with pharmacology and biotechnology, opened the doors of precision medicine. The application of physics, mathematics, engineering, and computer science to neuroradiology and neurophysiology has allowed for more precise localization of the epileptic focus and a deeper understanding of epilepsy pathophysiology. Thanks to these advancements, focal onset epilepsy is no longer considered only a mere focal brain dysfunction but a network disorder involving all of the circuits interconnected with the focus itself.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish original research in the clinical, surgical, genetic, neurophysiological, neuroradiology, neuromodulation, neurocognitive, and neuroengineering fields which contributes to consolidating, promoting, and developing these new modern concepts of epilepsy.
