In 1888, Hughlings Jackson1 reported a large series of patients from London, England, with
a variety of epilepsy . . . in which . . . "dream state" is a striking symptom. . . . There is not always loss, but there is, I believe, always, at least defect, of consciousness . . . [and in some cases] there are exceedingly complex and very purposive-seeming actions during continuing unconsciousness.
