Abstract

To understand basic functional mechanisms that cause epileptic seizures, the paper discusses some key features of theoretical brain functioning models. The hypothesis is put forward that a plausible reason for seizures is pathological feedback in brain circuitry. The analysis of such circuitry has an interesting physical interpretation and may be used to cure epilepsy.
