Quote Paraph: "If we believe that the primary change in epilepsy is a morbid action of the nervecells, it is reasonable to conclude that the drug does good in epilepsy by directly influencing them. Agents which increase reflex action, such as strychnia, are now believed to do so by lessening the resistance in the nerve-centres involved."
