- Epilepsia. Un Punto de Vista Latinoamericano
La epidemiología de muchas enfermedades tiene variaciones geográficas relevantes, tal es el caso de la epilepsia. En amplias áreas de América Latina la frecuencia de la epilepsia es más del doble de la encontrada en países con alto grado de desarrollo. Estas diferencias son debidas a factores locales asociados con deficiencias médicas o sanitarias.

- Advances in Clinical Neurophysiology - I. Ajeena (Intech, 2012) WW
Clinical neurophysiology is a continuously growing branch of medical sciences that tends to link itself with unlimited number of other medical and surgical specialties. Recently, it is known that clinical neurophysiology is becoming increasingly important not only for the early diagnosis of some diseases but also because it can be applied within some surgical fields and within the intensive care units. Neurophysiology is also important for long term monitoring of some patients despite its role in curing many entities of diseases. It also has a role to monitor the progress of some diseases in response to different modalities of treatment.
- Neonatal Seizures: An Update on Mechanisms and Management
Neonatal seizures are an important example of an age-specific seizure syndrome. Compared with seizures at older ages, neonatal seizures differ in etiology, semiology, and electroencephalographic signature, and can be refractory to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) that are effective in other age populations. Their unique pathophysiology has become the subject of many research studies from a basic and clinical perspective, and is leading the way to new therapies for this often refractory disorder.
