Recent advances in functional neuroimaging have greatly enhanced our understanding of brain functionality through the ability to visualize brain processes at work. Brain Imaging in Epilepsy provides an overview of the techniques that have been developed, including positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Relevant features of the basic neuroscience of epilepsy are reviewed, and the application of these techniques in diagnosing, treating and developing new treatments for epilepsy is discussed. This book will prove fascinating to a large audience from practicing neurologists and radiologists, to junior doctors and students of medicine, neuroscience and medical physics.
