Epilepsy is defined as a diverse set of neurological disorders characterized by seizures. These seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Factors that may lead to epilepsy include, but are not limited to, brain trauma, gene mutations, strokes, brain cancer, and extensive drug and alcohol use. Seizures occur due to a large release of glutamate, which causes a spread of excitation throughout the brain, which propagates the electrical signal and can lead to neuronal death. Benign rolandic epilepsy is the most common epilepsy syndrome in childhood, with an age of onset from 1 to 14 years. Seizures occur in the rolandic area of the brain, and they may consist of unilateral sensorimotor symptoms of the face and mouth, speech arrest, and hypersalivation. Half of the population also exhibit full body symptoms, such as convulsions and unresponsiveness. About 50 million people have epilepsy, with 80% of that population located in developing countries. It is possible to control epilepsy with medicine, but many cases may require surgery in order to relieve symptoms.
