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. Complex partial epilepsy is a disorder that is associated with bilateral cerebral hemisphere involvement and causes an alteration of consciousness. Complex partial epilepsy will cause a seizure that lasts 30 seconds to 2 minutes. An aura may occur at the beginning of a seizure. The person may appear awake but cannot respond to anything. The seizure may include involuntary movements called automatisms. 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.
