EPILEPSY AND SCHIZOPHRENIA

By 

Abstract

Slater's work on the schizophrenia-like psychoses of epilepsy is re-examined in the light of subsequent developments in psychiatry and neurology. Simple causal links of the sort he postulated between epilepsies and psychoses appear increasingly tenuous, despite indications that some psychotic symptoms and some localised structural changes are linked. A resumption of the study of electrophysiological similarities between schizophrenia and limbic epilepsy may offer a useful alternative programme for research
