Example text

Epilepsy Is More Than Seizures There have been many attempts to obtain a consensus on definitions of epileptic seizure and epilepsy. â This definition acknowledges that previous concepts of decreased inhibition and increased excitation were oversimplifications, because inhibition is actually increased in some forms of epilepsy where phasic inhibition is a central element in the primary epileptogenic abnormality. An epileptic seizure can also be a natural response of the normal brain to transient disturbance in function and, therefore, not necessarily an indication of an epileptic disorder.

Additional complexities entailed in family studies of epilepsy are addressed in the review of electroencephalographic (EEG) traits in Chapter 16. Many EEG patterns are clearly inherited, often as a single-gene trait. The relationship of these patterns to clinical epilepsy, however, is elusive. The failure to distinguish between familial aggregations of EEG patterns and familial aggregations of seizures or epilepsy continues to cause confusion and would appear to be an important area for further study.
