The boundaries between epilepsy and movement disorders are difficult to define. For the first time, a distinguished, international team of specialists comprehensively examines the clinical, neurophysiological, genetic, pharmacological and molecular factors which underlie the relationships and differences between the two disorders. They examine the methods for investigating the characteristics of epilepsies which resemble movement disorders; present a scheme for neurophysiological classification; examine the causes of diagnostic problems; review the latest genetic findings; and assess the drug treatments available. This is essential reading for clinicians and neuroscientists.
