Epilepsy

brain  

Epilepsy is not a disease, but is a condition or syndrome in which a patient experiences recurrent seizures. A seizure is a sudden, time-limited, involuntary alteration of neurologic functioning caused by an abnormal electrical discharge from neurons in the brain. 

Types of seizures vary as do their symptoms and can range from a momentary disruption of the senses, to short periods of unconsciousness or staring spells or convulsions. A single seizure does not result in a diagnosis of epilepsy.
