Epilepsy Teaching Weekend from 14−15 May 2022 - lecture notes

Below is the eighteenth edition of these lecture notes from the Epilepsy Teaching Weekend from 14−15 May 2022. They were first published in 1987 as a summary of the material used in the biannual epilepsy teaching weekend organised under the auspices of the British Branch of the International League Against Epilepsy. Over the years the notes have evolved from a summary into a comprehensive text; for this we would like to acknowledge the hard work of the contributors and previous editors, particularly John Duncan and Ley Sander to whom we are much indebted.

The material contained within this book continues to complement the Epilepsy Teaching Course, and as such takes a broad view of epilepsy. We hope that the contents will be used for teaching on other courses. The chapters can be freely copied for such purposes, as we have deliberately not copyrighted them. We have expanded some chapters and introduced new chapters in response to comments received concerning previous Lecture Notes.

The evolution of this book through the teaching course has meant that it maintains a pragmatic tone, yet covers many topics in detail. For this, we are very grateful to contributors for their accomplished chapters, and to Hannah Stapley for her dedication and tenacity in compiling this edition.

Lastly we would like to thank the sponsors UCB Pharma, Zogenix, Angelini, Desitin Pharma, LivaNova and UNEEG Medical who have given without demands, and the British Branch of the International League Against Epilepsy for their continued support.
