Figure 2: The following diagram shows the active, dynamic nature of epileptogenic networks. Epileptogenecity initially begins with a group of bistable local neurons which recruit more distant neurons and are joined back by reverberating circuits forming a ''node.'' When epilepsy remains untreated, more distant neurons are recruited within the network progressively increasing both its size and complexity. Thus, an epileptogenic network is constantly evolving as compared to the zone concept which was assumed to be static
