A look at the ancient and still mysterious causes and treatment of Gran Mal epilepsy. It explains briefly what the condition is and what is suspected to cause the seizures.

From the Paper:

"An epileptic seizure is a frightening experience, not only for the person experiencing the condition, but also from the point of view of a bystander witnessing the individual in the throws of the condition. Epilepsy remains a mysterious condition in many ways. Scientists and doctors are still not sure why the brain's communication short-circuits in such a way, provoking unpredictable seizure without apparent cause in the suffering victim. Epilepsy is a long-known illness, recorded as early as in ancient Greek and Roman times. Julius Caesar was a noted sufferer of the "falling sickness." Since then, although physicians have not been able to eradicate the disease, they now have a more coherent explanation of this medical disorder, if not a full answer and a cure for its mysteries.
