Neurosurgical Aspects of Epilepsy
In ancient times, epilepsy was called “the holy disease”. It remains unclear if this was so because the afflicted individual was supposed to be harbouring divine powers, or because he or she was being punished by the gods. Probably the gods alone know the answer. It appears, however, that this is not the only secret about epilepsy that the gods want to keep hidden from man. Although a considerable amount of progress has been made in virtually every field of epilepsy research, this progress has yet to answer some of the essential questions, but has unravelled a myriad of new uncertainties.
