Nine Stubborn Brain Myths That Just Won't Die, Debunked by Science
Thanks for replying in a constructive way, I realise my post may have come across as arsey... The top link is interesting and mentions the Grand Mal Seizures, but I'd still want more reliable sources since it also mentions the alcohol killing brain cells myth. The snopes one seems to be broken, so I'm not sure what to make of it. The Scientific American one is also interesting, but doesn't mention the Grand Mals specifically. I haven't spent a lot of time looking at fMRI scans but the few images I've seen seem to suggest more than 10% activity across the brain... Where's a neurologist when you need one?
