What Is Epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a medical condition that produces seizures. A seizure is a disruption of the electrical communication between neurons. This can affect a variety of mental and physical functions.
It’s also called a seizure disorder. When a person has two or more seizures, they are considered to have epilepsy.
A seizure happens when a brief, strong surge of electrical activity affects part or all of the brain. One in 10 adults will have a seizure sometime during their life and 1 in 26 will be diagnosed with epilepsy during their lifetime, making epilepsy the fourth most common neurological condition.
