A number of conditions including epilepsy, and manic depressive psychosis and additional states in which a process similar to kindling may be of importance are highlighted. In addition, the possible implications of the kindling hypothesis of neuropsychiatric disorders are fully explored. This book offers a fascinating insight into current thinking and will serve as an invaluable reference source.
