SEIZURE CLASSIFICATION

A seizure is a transient occurrence of signs and/or symptoms due to abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. A seizure does not necessarily mean that a person has epilepsy. Seizures fall broadly into two main groups: focal and generalized, although these categories may not be suitable to describe all seizures. The term 'features' will be used in EpilepsyDiagnosis.org to describe both the signs and symptoms that occur during seizures.
