Epilepsy and Seizures

Epilepsy represents an important area of clinical neuropsychological practice and research. Historically, clinical neuropsychology studies primarily involved patients with seizures that were not adequately controlled by anti-epileptic drugs, termed medically refractory or intractable epilepsy. However, the role of the neuropsychological evaluation and the clinical neuropsychologist has expanded well beyond a narrow focus on patients with medically intractable epilepsy. This chapter will provide an overview of the application of neuropsychology, psychology, and quality of life to patients with epilepsy, including a special section for the clinical neuropsychologist in the surgery team (see section “Neuropsychological (Cognitive and Behavioral) Comorbidity in Epilepsy”). Section “Neuropsychological Assessment Guide” provides an overview of assessment practices.
