This fully updated new edition of the definitive, unrivalled, no-nonsense textbook provides new treatment guidelines that aid the reader in effective management.

The book features encyclopedic coverage of all drug and surgical therapies, including the hot field of non-invasive and invasive cortical stimulation.
