1 They are called ‘subclinical’ or ‘electrographic’ seizures, which manifest with paroxysmal rhythmic epileptiform discharges that evolve in time and space in the absence of objective and subjective clinical manifestations. However, it is often difﬁcult to determine the lack of subtle clinical manifestations during ‘ictal-like’ EEG paroxysms and their boundaries with truly ictal seizures (see for example phantom absence seizures or electrographic seizures in neonates and comatose patients). An epileptogenic discharge may start in or invade any cortical or subcortical brain area and network.
24,30,31 Such a classiﬁcation, applying the methods used in biology to determine separate species, is a noble and legitimate target but it appears to be very elusive. Phylogenetic systematics could provide an initial model worth studying in this context. While the classiﬁcation of species cannot be directly applied to the classiﬁcation of epilepsy syndromes, three general points can be appreciated. (1) In evolutionary biology, there is an operationalized deﬁnition of the end point (a species). There is no such deﬁnition of a syndrome.
