What Is Epilepsy?

PUBLISHED ON: Feb 25, 2017 | Duration: 04:27 Min

An epileptic seizure, also known as an epileptic fit, is a brief episode of signs or symptoms due to abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. The outward effect can vary from uncontrolled jerking movement (tonic-clonic seizure) to as subtle as a momentary loss of awareness (absence seizure). Diseases of the brain characterized by an enduring predisposition to generate epileptic seizures are collectively called epilepsy. On this special episode we talk about what is Epilepsy and what to do if you come across someone having a seizure.
