9780120885541: Models of Seizures and Epilepsy

An understanding of mechanisms underlying seizure disorders depends critically on the insights provided by model systems. In particular with the development of cellular, molecular, and genetic investigative tools, there has been an explosion of basic epilepsy research. "Models of Seizures and Epilepsy" brings together, for the first time in 30 years, an overview of the most widely-used models of seizures and epilepsy. The chapters cover a broad range of experimental approaches (from in vitro to whole animal preparations), a variety of epileptiform phenomenology (including burst discharges and seizures), and suggestions for model characterization and validation, such as electrographic, morphologic, pharmacologic, and behavioral features. Experts in the field provide not only technical reviews of these models but also conceptual critiques - commenting on the strengths and limitations of these models, their relationship to clinical phenomenology, and their value in developing a better understanding and treatments. "Models of Seizures and Epilepsy" is a valuable, practical reference for investigators who are searching for the most appropriate laboratory models for addressing key questions in the field. It also provides an important background for physicians, fellows, and students, offering insight into the potential for advances in epilepsy research. It is the first comprehensive description of animal models of epilepsy since the early 1970's. It offers comprehensive analysis of 'What the models model' to guide the selection of each model, and what specific questions it will answer. It includes elegant examples of the use of novel technologies that can be applied in experimental epilepsy research. It presents world expert opinions on the clinical relevance of each model.

Review:

"This book is an invaluable resource for those interested in the details of epilepsy. It will be an excellent resource for all neurologists and neurosurgeons involved in research or clinical treatment for the disease." --NEUROSURGERY QUATERLY (Mar-May 2006) "5 Stars - This is a superb and current compendium of selected models of epilepsy and their utility in investigating the various mechanisms and manifestations of epilepsy. ...This book should be on the shelf as a resource for all investigators of the mechanisms of epilepsy whether they utilize cells, slices, mice, humans, or machines. It fills an important void in the review literature that has not been comprehensively addressed for some time." --Gregory Kent Bergery, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, in DOODY'S (May 2006)

About the Author:

Dr. Pitk nen is currently a Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio, Finland. She has over a 30 years' experience in working and developing animal models of acquired epilepsy and phenotyping of epilepsy models, using histologic and molecular analysis, behavioral tests, long-term video-EEG and MRI imaging. She is a leader in epilepsy research and has participated in several NINDS on Epilepsy Models Workshops and worked in several ILAE Committees related to preclinical modelling and use of models to develop better therapies for epilepsy. She has an h-index of 52 and has over 279 publications. Dr. Mosh is a professor of neurology, neuroscience, and pediatrics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is the Director of Child Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology and the recipient of a Martin A. and Emily L. Fisher fellowship in Neurology and Pediatrics at Albert Einstein. Dr. Mosh received his M.D. from the National University of Athens School of Medicine, Athens, Greece in 1972. He trained in pediatrics at the University of Maryland and in neurology at Albert Einstein. Since 1979, his research has focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying age-related differences in epilepsy in humans and in animal models. During the last ten years, his interest has turned to elucidating the subcortical circuitry involved in the control of seizures as a function of age and the consequences of seizures on the developing brain.
