Current Options and Future Strategies for Epilepsy Treatment

 Epilepsy is one of the most common chronic neurological disorders represented by uncontrolable, unpredictable and recurrent seizures. Epilepsy can lead to brain dysfunction as well as cognitive, psychological, and social problems.  For the last decades, various treatment options for epilepsy are used in clinical practices. The most well known treatment strategies of epilepsy are; antiepileptic drugs, surgery, vagal nerve stimulation, neuromodulation and ketogenic diet.
