The Functions of Brain and Muscle, considered in relation to Epilepsy

  • J. Thompson Dickson (a1)
Extract

The object of this paper is to discuss some of the opinions which have recently been expressed as to the nature of Epilepsy; and in particular, the views of Dr. Hughlings Jackson, who regards the epileptic phenomenon as the result of a “discharge” from a damaged portion of the brain, which he speaks of as a “discharging lesion.”∗
