Epilepsy is a disorder which might has just one visible symptom – seizure. The seizure is a sudden change in behavior. Sometimes, it can include the fall or unconsciousness, but might also remain unseen or un-noticed by you or the others around you.
The exact cause of epilepsy is still unknown. Scientists have recorded excessive, simultaneous discharge of some groups of neurons in the brain during the seizure. This synchronized action is believed to be the cause of epilepsy. According to the location where the seizure started, seizures are divided in:Partial seizuresGeneralized seizures
Partial seizures start in localized parts of the brain and can be: simple, complex and secondary generalized.
Generalized seizures may be located in the whole brain and these are: grand mal (or tonic-clonic seizures), petit mal (sometimes called absence seizures), mioclonic, and atonic seizures.There are also other types of epilepsy, such as Jacsonian fit, traumatic and sensory epilepsy.
