Epilepsy Disorders and treatments

Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behaviour, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. People with epilepsy experience recurrent seizures, because a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain causes a temporary disturbance in the messaging systems between brain cells. There are several different types of seizures depending upon the individual. Most seizures can be categorized as either focal or generalized.

 

  • Track 1-1 Focal Seizures
  • Track 2-2 Generalized seizures
  • Track 3-3 Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures
  • Track 4-4 Status Epilepticus
  • Track 5-5 Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP)
  • Track 6-6 Vegas nerve stimulation
  • Track 7-7 Deep brain stimulation
