Epilepsy

Definition

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. A seizure is a sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain. There are many different types of seizures, depending on how and where they begin in the brain - for example, some people might stare into space, and others may have uncontrollable shaking.
