This page is horrible. Lack of citations, generalizations about the condition, non-sequiturs, and irrelevant data have swamped down the quality of the entry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 06:34, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Agree with the last statement... this page is full of conjecture and is poorly written. It needs a more professional treatment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:25, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Removed this text regarding epilepsy. It's just not true. You can have major seizures, minor seizures, localised or generalised seizures in any order. It's not true that they always spread or always get progressively §worse
"and the more seizures that someone has, the worse these seizures get. In epilepsy, a seizure originates in one part of the brain, and then spreads to other areas. An important dogma concerning neurons is that “neurons that fire together, wire together.” This boils down to pathways in the brain that are used simultaneously over and over again will become associated, and when one pathway is activated independently after this association, the other pathway will become stimulated. Therefore, with seizures brought about by epilepsy, the more areas become entangled, the easier it is for the storm to affect a bigger portion of the brain at an increased severity".§220.127.116.11 (talk) 13:27, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
There has been a lot of improvements to this page.
