We must first define the seizure, as a group of symptoms,

characterized by neuronal activity in the brain that leads to peculiar

physical findings such as contraction and trembling of one or more

muscles.

These may be caused by high fever, diseases such as epilepsy,

drug ingestion or some blow to the head.

The severity of symptoms can vary greatly, from simple episodes of

loss of consciousness and violent convulsions. For most patients

with epilepsy, each seizure is similar to the above.

The type of seizures a person has depends on a variety of things, as

part of the brain affected and the underlying cause of the seizure.
