What is Epilepsy?

According to the California Department of Developmental Services, Epilepsy is defined as a pattern of a sudden attack of electrical impulses in the brain causing the body to react. They are recurrent and unprovoked seizures. There are two types of seizures: Generalized and Partial. With Generalized Seizures, seizures attack the entire brain and cause the entire body to react. There are two kinds of Generalized Seizures, grand mal and petit mal. With Partial Seizures, they can occur when only a certain part of the brain is attacked. There are two kinds of Partial Seizures, Simple and Complex.
