    I am pleased to present the second volume of this journal which continues to provide a platform to share insights and find solution for the world's most common neurological problem, ‘Epilepsy’.

    This is exemplified by eloquently written original articles on Knowledge, attitude and practice of parents towards pediatric antiepileptic drug therapy and Quality of life predictors in patients with refractory epilepsy and cognitive disabilities. Questionnaires and scales are used to assess the awareness about the nature and duration of treatment, its objectives, use of drugs, their side effects and importance of adherence to drug regimen and quality of life predictors.

    In this issue, we also feature an interesting review which focuses on the electroclinical patterns of neonatal seizures and epilepsies with an emphasis on the classification and terminologies and current therapeutic options, two case reports revealing that Status epilepticus may be caused by H1N1 infection and Levetiracetam and Letter to the Editor regarding febrile seizures following camphor ingestion and role of physical exercise as a coping strategy for psychological stress for patients with psychogenic seizures.

    Finally, this issue also features Hypomyelinating disorders with wide spectrum of clinical and radiological manifestations through the image of month

    The journal also includes 10 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) made de novo by our experts and 10 MCQs from previous issue to recall and maintain continuity with the previous issue. This is a unique concept that ensures that the previous issue always remains on the shelf of your library.

    This issue represents the expertise and wisdom of our hard working authors and the collaborative effort of our associate editors, section editors and editorial board members who graciously devoted their time to prepare this edition. Their work represents ongoing proficient medical research. I sincerely appreciate their efforts and encourage them to continue their hard work for this excellent journal.
