I recently discovered Neurology Now in the “Brain Awareness” program here in Portland. I have a personal interest in consciousness and neuroscience.

I also have a friend who struggles with complex partial seizures and their many ramifications, though it's hard to get definitive information on this condition. I'm particularly interested in understanding the symptoms that precede the actual seizure and the duration of these symptoms following the seizure. Are there any preventive measures that can be taken during the preseizure phase to avoid a seizure? What kinds of interventions can you recommend? I hope that in the future you can do an issue on seizures: simple partial seizures, complex partial seizures, even nonepileptic seizures. Thank you for considering this!
