Representing Epilepsy
Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents concluding remarks on epilepsy. It specifically addresses the ongoing story of this condition. Understanding of epilepsy syndromes considerably varies between the neurologists of the late-nineteenth century and their twenty-first-century counterparts. This chapter shows that brain mapping projects still continue into the twenty-first century. It is believed that the presence of any of the epilepsies is so catastrophic to human function that any response, diagnostic or therapeutic, is justifiable. It is also suggested that the biomedical perspective must be improved with other narratives and other possible outcomes to the diagnosis of ‘epileptic’.
