Seizure disorders directory

The brain communicates with other parts of the body through electrical impulses. For the brain to function properly, these electrical impulses must be discharged in an orderly, organised and coordinated way. If not, seizures may occur. In seizure disorders, the brain's electrical activity is occasionally disturbed, resulting in temporary brain dysfunction. There are two basic types of seizure disorders, epileptic seizures and nonepileptic seizures. Follow the links below to find BootsWebMD's comprehensive coverage on seizure disorders, their symptoms, how they are treated and much more.
