Epilepsy’s Connection to the Brain
The brain contains billions of nerve cells called neurons that communicate with each other by sending and receiving electrical impulses. A seizure occurs when there is abnormal and excessive electrical activity that temporarily interrupts normal brain function. A seizure is a disruption of the electrical communication between neurons. Epilepsy is more common these other neurological disorders combined — Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
