What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a medical condition that produces seizures affecting a variety of
mental and physical functions. It’s also called a seizure disorder. When a person
has two or more unprovoked seizures, they are considered to have epilepsy. A
seizure happens when a brief, strong surge of electrical activity affects part or all
of the brain. One in 10 adults will have a seizure sometime during their life.
