Does the moon affect our epilepsy?
What researchers have to say…
Researchers discovered that the number of epileptic seizures – which are related to electrical activity in the brain – goes down when the Moon is at its brightest.
The researchers compared the timing of each seizure with the brightness of the Moon. Their results showed that during the brighter phases of the Moon’s cycle there were fewer epileptic seizures in the corresponding 24-hour period.
