Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes recurring, unprovoked seizures [3]. It is characterized by recurrent epileptic seizures caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain [4]. Symptoms of epilepsy can vary and may include changes in behavior, loss of consciousness or convulsions [2]. Diagnosis typically involves an EEG test to measure electrical activity in the brain and other tests such as MRI scans or blood tests [5]. Treatment options for epilepsy include medications, surgery, lifestyle modifications and alternative therapies such as acupuncture or yoga [6]. The Epilepsy Foundation provides support for people with epilepsy and their families through education, advocacy and research initiatives [1][7].

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. Seizures are caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain, and can cause physical symptoms such as convulsions, loss of consciousness, or changes in behavior. Epilepsy can be caused by genetic factors, head trauma, stroke, infections of the brain or other medical conditions. Treatment for epilepsy typically involves medications to control seizures and lifestyle modifications to reduce seizure triggers. In some cases surgery may be recommended to remove areas of the brain that are causing seizures.
