Abstract

This paper begins a two-part series on current psychiatric aspects of epilepsy. Part I focuses on the current classification of epileptic seizures; the possible relationships of epilepsy, especially temporal lobe epilepsy, with psychopathology; and the difficulties of evaluating epileptic conditions through electroencephalography. Part II, to be published in the April issue, will cover the management of epilepsy that is accompanied by behavior disturbance.
