Jasper's Basic Mechanisms of the Epilepsies
by Jeffrey L Noebels (ed.)
Publisher: National Center for Biotechnology Information 2012
Number of pages: 1264
The book considers the role of interactions between neurons, synapses, and glia in the initiation, spread and arrest of seizures. It examines mechanisms of excitability, synchronization, seizure susceptibility, and ultimately epileptogenesis. It provides a framework for expanding the epilepsy genome and understanding the complex heredity responsible for common epilepsies as it explores disease mechanisms of ion channelopathies and developmental epilepsy genes.

This book covers many aspects of the biology of NMDARs: their role in controlling of synapses and neurons during early development; how overstimulation of NMDARs results in excitotoxicity and contributes to several progressive brain disorders.

For those with medically intractable epilepsy, the recurrent seizures lead to increased mortality and risks of injury. Fortunately for many people with intractable epilepsy, epilepsy can be cured or seizures better controlled with surgical treatment.

The animals models of cognitive impairment described in this book are diverse and involve common cognitive diseases such as AD and schizophrenia. A general coverage of the broad aspects of cognitive impairment is realized.

Neural ensemble recording grew into a well-respected and highly data-lucrative science. New experimental paradigms and the establishment of direct real-time brain-machine interfaces hold promise for new-generation prosthetic devices.
