The Lancet Neurology launched

THE LANCET NEUROLOGY (TLN), the third monthly specialty review journal from THE LANCET Publishing Group, is launched this month. Building on the success of THE LANCET ONCOLOGY and THE LANCET INFECTIOUS DISEASES, TLN will provide clinicians and researchers with up to date information on the latest developments in neurology. Each issue of TLN will include: five reviews, written by some of the most respected names in neurology; personal views from neurologists around the world; news stories; commissioned commentaries; case reports; forums; grand rounds; book, web, film, and art reviews; and a thought-provoking last page written by John McCrone, a journalist with a special interest in the neurosciences.

TLN Editor James Butcher comments: Neurology has the potential to be one of the biggest growth areas in medicine over the coming decade. Because of the nervous systems complexity, progress up until now has been slower than in other medical specialties. However, it is realistic to hope that major breakthroughs will be made in the not-too-distant future. THE LANCET NEUROLOGY intends to be at the forefront of this medical endeavour, and will report the most important advances in a timely and comprehensive way.


Predicting who is at risk

New technologies, especially in genetics and imaging, mean that neurologists will soon be able to predict which of their patients are at the greatest risk of developing a neurological condition. Some of the recent developments in this area are discussed in this months issue:

1. There is now mounting evidence that epileptic seizures begin minutes to hours before clinical onset. In this issue, Brian Litt and Javier Echauz describe the techniques that are being developed for seizure prediction. They suggest that implantable devices that can detect impending seizures and then deliver preventative therapy are a realistic goal.

2. The ability to d
