The role of the insular cortex in epilepsy has been largely neglected until very recently. With growing interest in insular epilepsies, this book provides unique, in-depth coverage of the condition from childhood to adulthood. Detailed description of the anatomy, vascularization, connectivity, and functions of the insula along with complete description of the semiology, neurophysiology, and neuroimaging of insular epilepsy helps clinicians better recognize the condition. Up-to-date treatment avenues are explored, guiding the management of patients, including drug-resistant cases suitable for neurosurgery. Authors come from a range of backgrounds, providing a multidisciplinary perspective essential to all health professionals involved in epilepsy diagnosis and treatment. A scratch-off code in the inside cover allow users access to an online equivalent of the book, featuring videos illustrating the semiology of the various forms of insular seizures. This authoritative overview provides clinicians with the necessary information to treat this under-recognized condition.


Entirely devoted to insular cortex epilepsy, this book provides unique, in-depth coverage of the condition lacking in many major epilepsy textbooks, raising awareness of this long-neglected type of epilepsy

Contains detailed descriptions of insular epilepsy semiology, neurophysiology and neuroimaging, allowing readers to better recognize the condition and how best to investigate it

Describes a range of treatment avenues, ensuring readers are aware of the best treatment options available and can tailor them to each patient

Multidisciplinary in nature, a range of health professionals provide key insights into both diagnosis and treatment, as well as explaining the role and functions of the insula from a neuroscience perspective
