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. Temporal lobe epilepsy is one of the most common forms of focal epilepsy, a chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent seizures. The ACOT7 gene is associated with this disease. Lateral temporal lobe epilepsy arises in the neocortex on the outer surface of the temporal lobe, and it causes problems across the entire body, including auditory and visual hallucinations, language disturbances and muscle ictal symptoms. 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.
