Subject:        Seizure Feedback

Thanks to all the responses I got on list and off.

I'm happily visiting the Huntington for a bit and have tracked down some
earlier uses of "epilepsy" and "fit" and will send a quick report when I
get things together.

Happy summer, Jan Stirm

Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0644  Re: Seizures

For Larry Weiss: No, I did not suggest that a naevus flammeus could
result from or be a symptom of an epileptic seizure. What I wrote was
that in Shakespeare's time *both* conditions were thought to be evidence
of contact with supernaturalities. Hope this clarifies the point.

All the best,
Steve Sohmer
