What is epilepsy?
For a healthy person, the exchange of electrical and chemical signals between nerve cells in the brain is precisely coordinated. For patients who suffer from epilepsy, this coordination can get temporarily disturbed, resulting in pathological electrical discharges. Subsequent nerve cells then respond by sending sudden, uncontrolled signals, creating a sort of “electrical storm in the brain”. This spreads and activates individual brain areas – or even the whole brain – in an unnatural way. The symptoms and expressions of the resulting epileptic seizure depend on the areas affected.1
