A current update on the use of clinical neuropsychology in epilepsy and its future outlook

Clinical neurology has still not managed to clear a way in the daily practice with patients with all types of epilepsy despite significant advances in cognitive neuroscience and a large number of clinical studies on epilepsy and cognition.

How is it that there are only rarely major advances in the field of clinical neuropsychology? It has long been time for this question to be asked, and for an attempt to be made to bring about changes. This was the aim of the Progress in Epileptic Disorders workshop held in Toronto and the result of this book.
