Special Issue Information
Neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder and intellectual disability affect more than 10% of the population, with onset in childhood. Epilepsy is also a common condition affecting 1% of the population. The prevalence of neurodevelopmental conditions in epilepsy is high (approximately 50%) and, as yet, under-investigated. There is a high prevalence of morbidity (including mental health) and mortality in individuals who have co-morbid neurodevelopmental conditions and epilepsy. In this Special Issue, we invite submissions describing multi- and inter-disciplinary clinical, genetic, immunological and imaging insights into neurodevelopmental conditions in epilepsy, from causation to treatment avenues.
