Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. Seizures are sudden, temporary disturbances in brain function that can cause a wide range of symptoms, including convulsions, altered consciousness, and unusual sensations. These seizures can vary in frequency, duration, and severity from person to person.

Patients who suffer from epilepsy can also suffer from depression, anxiety, and attention problems all of which can have a significant negative impact on quality of life.
