Epilepsy- A Neurological Disease:

Epilepsy is a chronic condition which causes recurrent seizures. A seizure occurs due to a sudden rush of electrical activity in the brain.

Generalized seizure affects the whole brain whereas partial seizure causes damage in one part of the brain. 

Reasons behind the seizure:

  • High fever
