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.

'This slim volume, part of the International Review of Child Neurology series, provides an up-to-date review of neonatal seizures, covering their definition, pathophysiology, neuroradiological correlates, detection by electrophysiological monitoring, management, and outcome. It is the most contemporary and comprehensive coverage of neonatal seizures currently available in a single volume, and as such, comprises an important source of clinical information.' Carl E. Stafstrom, Journal of Pediatric Epilepsy, 2016

'Professor Nagarajan has done a first-class job gathering and collating contributions from experts around the world, balancing the content of the book appropriately, and avoiding too much repetition. In my opinion this book fills a definite gap in the market.' Janet M Rennie Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, 2016

'Overall, this is an excellent and highly important contribution. I congratulate the authors and I agree with Prof. Gregory L. Holmes, who provided the foreword, that Prof. Lakshmi Nagarajan deserves great praise for bringing this book to fruition. Everybody who handles neonates and neonatal seizures should have access to this book as a source for current knowledge and developments in neonatal seizures.' Bernhard Schmitt, Neuropediatrics, 2016

'There are numerous chapters in various neurology textbooks that cover neonatal seizures, but these do not give the in-depth review found here. The only other book dedicated to this subject (Diagnosis and Management of Neonatal Seizures, Mizrahi and Kellaway (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1998)) is 18 years old and quite out of date. Dr. Nagarajan has made a substantial contribution to the field with this book, which should find its way into the hands of many neonatal clinicians.' Jay Goldsmith, MD, Tulane University School of Medicine
