By the fourth and fifth centuries astrologers were commonly using the term to refer to neurological and psychiatric diseases.[3] 

 

Philosophers such as Aristotle and Pliny the Elder argued that the full moon induced insane individuals with bipolar disorder by providing light during nights which would otherwise have been dark, and affecting susceptible individuals through the well-known route of sleep deprivation.[4]
