Epilepsy is a neurological condition that causes spontaneous, repeated seizures. Seizures occur when there are abnormal electrical impulses in the brain. A single seizure does not necessarily mean that a person will develop epilepsy.

Epilepsy can occur on its own or can be associated with other neurological disorders. Epileptic seizures may cause:

  • Changes in sensation, such as taste, sight, smell, vision, and/or hearing

  • Changes in motor function, such as tremors, muscle spasms, rigidity, and/or loss of balance

  • Behavioral symptoms, such as staring episodes or unconsciousness

There are more than 30 different types of epileptic seizures. The type of seizure a person experiences depends on where the seizure begins in the brain. A partial seizure occurs when there are abnormal electrical impulses in only one area of the brain. General epileptic seizures occur when electrical impulses “storm” or spread through the brain.
