Jacksonian march is the sequential spread of a simple partial seizure to involve other body parts, for example, jerking may spread from one hand up the arm, to the ipsilateral side of the face. It may culminate in a secondary generalized seizure. The pathophysiological implication is of electrical disturbance spreading through the homunculus of the motor cortex. A sensory equivalent occurs but is rare.
