Learning About Epilepsy
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that consists of a predisposition to persistent epileptic seizures. Patients have an electrical predisposition to have clinical symptoms caused by aberrant electrical activity in the brain.
Dr. Andrew Lerman, Neurologist with Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, explains with a digital imaging how the brain activity increases and seizures occurs.
The specialist says epilepsy can be genetic, environmental, caused by trauma, strokes or neurodegenerative processes as well.
