The current definition for environmentally induced seizures (MP:0009358) is:
"relatively mild but sudden stimulation due to changes in ambient habitat including lighting, sounds, touching, and/ or moving cage"
I'm thinking some words are missing as it doesn't make much sense to me. Also, please consider adding temperature to the list of environmental conditions. There are a few existing annotations as well as one in J:189897 that deal with increased susceptiblity to thermal induction of seizures or to "febrile seizures". We may want to add a term for these.
Thanks,
Sue

    amended definition of [MP:009358] to include room temperature, and added new term "febrile seizures"[MP:0012011].
