The outstanding feature of Epileptic Disorders is the videotape that accompanies each issue. The videotaped patient behaviors and electroencephalograms overcome the difficulty of describing in words the brief and intermittent abnormal movements that characterize these disorders. The journal, along with the videotapes, provides the clinician a better understanding of clinical diagnosis and management of epileptic disorders. An additional benefit of the videotapes is the opportunity for research scientists to observe less common and severe forms of the epilepsies for the development of animal models.
