Abstract

Epilepsy is a condition which affects the brain and is defined as a tendency to have unprovoked seizures. It is one of the most common neurological conditions. A seizure is a sudden burst of unnecessary electrical activity in the brain. This electrical activity disrupts the way the brain usually functions. There are numerous different types and presentation of seizure. This article will explore these and briefly consider the nursing care required.
