Epilepsy

  • Jarrah Ali Al-Tubaikh

Abstract

Epilepsy is a chronic neurologic disease characterized by recurrent, spontaneous episodes of seizures, which are defined as excessive abnormal neuronal activity of the cortical neurons. Seizures originate either from a localized area within the brain (partial/focal), or arise from both hemispheres simultaneously (generalized).
