A seizure is a brief, strong surge of electrical activity that affects part or all of the brain. When a person experiences two or more unprovoked seizures in a year, it is considered epilepsy, which is also referred to as a generalized seizure disorder. 1 in 10 will experience a seizure in their lifetime.
The faces of epilepsy are those you see everyday—maybe your neighbor, co-worker, classmate, teacher, friend, or a family member.
