Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsies are discussed with special consideration of epidemiology and classification, progress in neuroimaging, electrophysiological studies using EEG and MEG, initiation of medical and surgical treatment, the role of new antiepileptic drugs and selected aspects of genetics of ideopathic epilepsies. In addition from conclusions obtained by the review of recent developments suggestions for future work in Europe are discussed. A constructive approach from multicenter studies requires homologous definitions, documentations and standardization of procedures of trials for European multicenter studies.
