	Hi, y'all!

	I'm buried in the midst of writing my thesis on the effects of chronic
temporal lobe epilespy in personality. I'd love to hear any interesting
information and theories that you netters might have, both on biological and
neuropsychological models. My current argument is that epileptic seizures
disrupt coritcal connections, causing sub-semantic changes in neuronal patterns
which cause personality changes on a macro scale. I'm also suspecting that
hippocampal sclerosis might play an important role; in what fashion I'm unsure
of.
