A better understanding of neural activity and the development of cortical connections and networks is an important requirement for evaluating the cause and treatment of neonatal seizures. There have been many advances in the management of neonatal seizures such as increased use of EEGs, therapeutic hypothermia for HIE and exome sequencing, to name a few. Neonatal Seizures, Current Management, Future Challenges distils what is known about these advances into one scholarly yet practical text.
