Epilepsy and Seizures

Epilepsy is a chronic illness where the nerves in brain send too many uncontrolled signals. These signals result in a seizure, where the person has a change in consciousness, and may have changes in movement, feeling, or reflexes.

  • complex partial seizures
  • frontal lobe epilepsy
  • infantile spasms
