Models Of Seizures And Epilepsy from the Author: Asla Pitkänen. 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. 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. · The first comprehensive description of animal models of epilepsy since the early 1970's · Comprehensive analysis of "What the models model" to guide the selection of each model, and what specific questions it will answer · Elegant examples of the use of novel technologies that can be applied in experimental epilepsy research · World expert opinions on the clinical relevance of each model

Intractable Seizures from the Author: W. McIntyre Burnham. About 20% of people with epilepsy have seizures which are resistant to anticonvulsant medications. These drug-resistant seizures are called `intractable', and the patients who have them - about 1 in 500 of the general population - present a major challenge to neurologists and epilepsy associations. The present volume describes the symptomatology of the major `intractable' syndromes, the most appropriate drugs for each, and the possibilities for surgical control. Research related to the causes and effects of unchecked seizures is presented, and new directions in prevention and therapy are discussed.

Forfeiting Our Property Rights from the Author: Henry J. Hyde. In Forfeiting Our Property Rights, Congressman Henry Hyde of Illinois examines the abuse inherent in civil forfeiture, the law that lets government take property that is merely suspected of having been used in a crime. Hyde, one of Congress's leading conservatives and the new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, shows how forfeiture law has cost innocent people their property and at least one citizen, Donald Scott, his life. In fact, over a quarter of a million Americans have had their property seized through forfeiture law. Although it has most often been used against suspected drug dealers, Hyde emphasizes that the war on drugs must not be used as a pretext for weakening the traditional protections of our property rights. Congressman Hyde proposes an overhaul of the law to protect innocent property owners, including a shift in burden of proof from the citizen to the government and a raising of the standard the government must satisfy to seize property in the first place.
