Nivens, Maryruth K.

Charts depict the location of discharge; seizure patterns and accompanying physical/psychological symptoms; precipitating agents for five types of seizures; and prescriptive information for specific medications including dilantin, mysoline, mesantain, and zaroutin. Implications for educators are addressed. (CL)
